Ride east on the south frontage road and turn left under the interstate. Turn right on the north frontage road then take the last left before the pavement ends. Ride north on this road until the T intersection then turn right onto the dirt road. Just past the white mission style house with black fence and barking dog (on the right) look for two small piles of rock to the left which define the trail. Follow this singletrack through a deep wash, up and around a hillside, then back down into a bigger wash. Watch the rocks and cactus. Hike-a-bike up the north side of the big wash, hop on the dirt road that heads back to the west, and turn south on the dirt road that drops into the first big wash. Ride this road south until it comes to houses, turn right and pedal through ANOTHER wash, then left at the top of the hill past the water tank. This is Foothills Blvd and you're almost back to your car.

The trail is really tight and loose in areas.
Very rugged terrain and fun, also watch out for various wild life and cactus's.
Bring lots of water and a few extra tubes because there is nothing for about 5 miles. Pack a lunch and take a buddy you will really enjoy this trail.
Good riding!!
The trial is for medium level riders with a good front suspension, leave the road bikes at home!

Recommended Route:
This is to add to the directions, you can drive to that location it will save you about 4 miles of riding. There is parking up near there.

Im new to the area and will be here for about two more weeks, looking to find more.

This seems like a lot of pavement but it's a nice break if you ride the south side of the highway first then finish off with this loop. The singletrack is rocky, challenging, and fun, but you really need to watch the cactus.

Recommended Route:
As described. Lots of variations on side trails and dirt roads.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
South side of the highway, Sugarloaf Peak.
