This trail almost doesn't exist anymore. It seems to have mostly been taken over by a parking lot and houses. There literally is only about 2 minutes worth of riding left there. If you live a block or two away and have a 5 year old to teach off-road biking to you could still try it out, otherwise don't bother.

Recommended Route:
The map shown is wrong but the address is correct.

This review is BS as the trial does exist and houses have NOT impeded on the trail. 3 mile loop. It was overgrown but trail work was done in 08 making it rideable again. One part of the trail is just southwest of the school, another, southeast and a third west of the schoolyard. Almost all of the trail is thru the desert surrounding the school property. This reviewer got lost.

If you are a beginner, live in the neighborhood or are visiting in the area, this is a great place to get in a short ride. Do two or three loops to get a little more riding time in. Fantasy Island designer Chuck Boyer helped lay these trails out. They twist and turn and have some interesting features. Watch out for kids learning to ride. This is not a place to hammer -- it's a good one to take a spouse or friend who wants to learn how to ride a mountain bike on singletrack.

Recommended Route:
Do the whole thing. It's short. Most popular entrance is between the playing fields at the south end of the school property. The trails are in three areas, so the south, west and north of the school, and are all connected.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fantasy Island, and up on Mt. Lemmon, the Prison Camp Trail to Molino Basin.
