San Tan Mountain Regional Park

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

This park is still relatively "primitive" There are currently 3 trails which can make up a 6 mile loop of jeep roads and newly constructed double track(San Tan Trail). Once the new trails are broken in, this will be a fun ride.

Summary:
When it comes to XC riding this trail system can't be beat. I grew up riding south mt and will ride the haws trail section and with the exception of DC at south mt I can't think of a better stretch of fast endurance trail riding. The all mountain, free ride and down hill guys won't care much for this trail system even with the gold mine down hill it's not a great park for that riding type. If your a Xc racer or someone that's not use to riding any technical trails this is a great place to get started in the sport.

Recommended Route:
Well the whole San tan trail is rideable now. Just avoid malpias all other trails have little sand and are very enjoyable. If anyone has strava look up segments that have a lot of riders those are alway the best routs to take. (Look me up if you want to see what I ride Brian Taylor )

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Haws and st mt trails

Summary:
I love the trail system, especially since they have opened up the new Dynamite Trail in February of 2012. The park depending on your route can be very sandy but you can easily avoid the wash areas and still ride nearly 15 miles! I live only a couple miles from the park so I easily ride it 2 to 3 times a week minimum. Dynamite is probably one of the better downhill experiences in the Phoenix metro area but is a turn around trail and the uphill is a bit lengthy, but hey, I love uphills so I highly recommend this trail. A lot of cardio filled uphills but you are kindly rewarded with speedy downhills regardless of which route you take. Overall if you avoid the sand filled wash at the Southern tip of San Tan Trail the ride is smooth, awesome and clearly signed.

Recommended Route:
From trail head take Little Leaf trail North towards the mountain and it will merge into Goldmine trail, head to the right(North) and take that to the intersection of Goldmine and San Tan trails. Turn left(West) on San Tan trail and take that to the intersection of San Tan and Dynamite trails. Turn right(West) on Dynamite trail and follow that animal up to the top of the mountain range and all the way down to the North side of the mountain range to the intersection of Dynamite and Goldmine trails. Turn around and make your way back to the Dynamite and San Tan trail intersection. Turn right(South) on San Tan and take that to the intersection of San Tan and Hedgehog trails. Turn right(North) and take that trail to the intersection of Hedgehog and San Tan trail. Turn left(North) and take that trail back to your starting point. With this route you have avoided all of the sandy areas in the park but you have missed out on Moonlight and Stargazer trail which are FUN short up and downs you will have to try afterward if you aren't to tired! There is an awesome map at the parking lot and everything is clearly marked, ENJOY.

Summary:
Rode this one today.... I parked on the side of the road on Phillips to avoid a $5 parking fee. $1 to ride. Overall a good ride, but there are some rough spots where the sand will eat up your energy. Nice ups for a good workout, rewarding downs to keep you going.
