Summary:
They recently gave the trails actual names, I normally ride the Coach Whip. Lose rock technical’s good for a beginning but great for mastering your switch back skills back to back turns maybe six all together maybe more. Once done you feel burn and can relax going down the other side of the mountain

Recommended Route:
High recommend starting from N 51st ave just north of the 101 highway

Other recommended trails in the same area:
White Tanks competition track

Summary:
Parts are good, however I only road the two trails going up one side and back down the other of the mountain with the theater built into the northeast side (visible from Pinnacle Peak).

Parts were good, the down was more enjoyable (east side) most parts were very doable not horribly technical but occasionally you would reach sections (20 ft or so) that were nothing but rocks, some jagged, some less, but that were pretty hard to go over without dismounting as they were completely varied rock that was pretty steep, but after traversing it, you could easily continue on. West side was more like this than East side.

Recommended Route:
East side assent up, and west side for down.

Summary:
These trails have been recently refurbished. Lots of dirt packed in and waterbars cut in. Trails are wide enough for passing, and smooth enough to get some real speed. There's not much in the way of technical obstacles, but there's some good lung burning climbs. I'd rate these trails as intermediate because of the steep climbs and marbles in the corners. A great option for n/w side quicky.

Recommended Route:
59th Ave. & Pinnacle Peak Rd.
Trails loop and/or crest each peak.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Trail 100 Phoenix Mountains Preserve
White Tank Regional Park
