F.I.N.S. North

Average Rating:    (4.31 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 16

F.I.N.S.,(Fantasy Island North Singletrack)is located in Estrella Mt. Ranch. To get there you go south from I-10 on Estrella Parkway 10.18 miles, turn R on Weststar for 1/2 mile, park at School and ride to trailhead 1/2 mi +. L turn at left turn lane is start of trailhead. This is a hiking, biking only trail. It took 2 yrs to build it is well marked with trail signs that have the names of the trail or hub. Some of the signs will include the pucker factors 1 to 4, 4 being the highest. It should be a fun & challenging trail for Intermediate and up. Beginers need some single track experience before riding this trail. There is pucker 3&4s on almost every trail. This trail will bite you if you don't pay attention. We are going to build a section for the beginner bikers soon, puckers 1 -3). If you do all of the trails you will climb 900 ft or more in the 7 miles. Grunt, Kylie's Crossing, Wayne's World, Bone Yard, Harv's Howl, Bear Claw and Hurts Donut will tax your skills while Murel's mile, Joey's Jaunt,Spent spade, Rusty rake, Kims klimb, Randy's ridge and Base Butte will be just plane fun. We are building two more trails Jim's Assent just for the ardent climbers. It will take you to the top of the highest point of the mountain and will have a 4 pucker rating for exposer. I have been riding this trail for over a year and don't get tired of it. It is our wish for you to enjoy the trails but please stay under control, sliding tires makes more work.

I live in the west valley, so we have estrella mountain regional trails or you can always go to whit tanks. If you feel like driving, please go to south mountain or do the T-100 up in north phoenix.

Summary:
Great system. Has a little bit of everything, even a mini mormon/national (see south mountain trail system for reference) at the top called The Grunt. Also, the builders built some nice jumps to hit when you're blazing down the hill towards the trailhead. Best of all, it was built by mountain bikers for mountain bikers so hikers and equestrian yield to us. They should actually post a sign at the trailhead to warn hikers.

Recommended Route:
It's a pretty compact system so just ride em all. It was my first time out there and I rode almost all of the trails in a little over 2hrs and that included several breaks so that my pathetically out of shape body could catch its breath.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nothing else around for miles as far as I know.

Summary:
My first ride on the west side, it was a long drive but great exposure to new trails. I like the short uphills and lots of rocks. I'm used to riding the McDowell trials, but this was a nice change. It was like a mini-theme park for us; when you get trough a trail that you really love it's easy to find a trail to loop around and do it again. The uphills are short and sweet and the trails are easy to follow.

Recommended Route:
Muriel's mile around the perimeter back to the start, and then Kim's climb over to Hurt's donut and back down. I like the switchbacks going down hurts donut, a mini version of sunset trail at Mcdowell without the punishing climb.
