Singletrack trails,with good use of elevation changes. Lots of challenging climbs, switchbacks, and fun/flowing descents. Perfect trails for night rides, with panoramic views of northwest Phoenix lights.
Water, restrooms, playground, and grassy areas at trailhead.

Summary:
This trail is right out my back door, this is my home track, I am on Deems at LEAST twice a week, and have been known to ride it 7 days a week, been doing that for a year, and there is still stuff that is surprising me, so much variation.

About 6 month ago we had a ton or rain, and Deems turned into a rocky beast, it was always rocky, but after rain it turned into a beast. Gradually it's getting better, some fo the trails have had some maintenance done, and some of them are just filling in with dust, but it's still rocky. KOM times on the downhills are ALL significantly slower than they were last year, because they are all so rocky. I can clean 99% of Deems on good day, and I have good days 2-3 rides, but there are usually some short sections 4-8ft that that a bear, especially the long switch back apexes hard to go up, down not so bad, but up right corner is hard. All in all I really like Deems, there are still some sections that you can blast on, as for as getting aerobic, there are TON and TONS of climbs, and you can string the patch wok of trails together in so many ways.
Deems is great for night ridiing in the summer, you see lights up there almost every night

Recommended Route:
Where do I start, I live on West side, so I usually start with climb up 39th street hill, once aorund the outside of Mtn, then down saddle, and perimeter over to the park
Do an Explore on Strava search for Deems Segements and they all pop up.
Other times we start at main park, so the warm up climb over to Saddle
Lots of variation

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Sonoran is right across I17, you can ride down canal over bike bridge, and be at Sonoran in a few nin, or up Norterra a few miles and your at North Sonoran, or head a few miles east and your in Thunderbird park, some day I am going to string all 4 perimeter rides together into one ride

Summary:
This is a fun little trail, I'd say its more of a double wide than single track, nonetheless its got some good tech, lung busting climbs. I think I heard a guy out there say if you climb both peaks, which is about an 8 mile loop, its an overall elevation gain of about 1200 feet. The downhill is super fun, you can easily get more speed than you'd ever want and theres plenty of runoff bumps to jump and pump through. Good for a quick hour/hour and half ride. Entire trail is rideable though some sections are tough, shouldnt be much of a problem to clean the whole trail.
