Soldier Trail

Average Rating:    (3.29 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

Soldier is a new loop trail that is a spur off the urban trail that heads south out of town toward Fort Tuthill (county fairgrounds) and the airport. It is smooth and easy. It is close to town. It is good for people with kids, pulling a trailer, a baby seat, beginners or a good high speed hammer training loop for faster riders. There are only a couple of short hills. Nothing scary. The whole thing is marked. It is also a good running trail or XC ski trail when there is snow.

Summary:
A nice fairly easy jaunt into the woods south of Flagstaff. Good for getting back into the swing of things or improving technique. A nice flat ride on the urban trail to get there then starts off with some long hills then turns into a nice and more difficult section of trail with a rock bridge and some easy switchbacks, then down into a longish downhill section that is pretty fun. Some nice fast single track at the end puts you right back at the trail head.

Recommended Route:
Follow the green trail markers and make sure to take the right hand side of the fork that goes up a hill a half mile or so into the trail. Then ride up that hill until you see the trail taking off to the left, (this can be a little tough to see). Take this trail until it meets up with soldier's trail proper and follow that around until you're back at the trail head.

Aldam, Fisher point

Summary:
Soldier trail is fairly easy, but the bridge trail makes up for it. I didn't see anyone on the trail at all except for some Mexican guy sitting up against a tree off in the forest. Strange. No traffic Saturday afternoon? That earns an extra star. Bridge trail is fun both ways and definitely makes the trail.

Recommended Route:
Start at the trailhead near the horse jumps. Go counter-clockwise around the loop and take the bridge trail back to the main trail. Then do it again going the other way. Bomb back down towards the trailhead. Don't bother riding the bit through the fairgrounds.
