Thunders Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

This prime short singletrack is popular with the local riders. The trail is shaped like a lolly pop with a fast and swoopy out and back and a mix of short burner hills and technical drops on the loop. Its a great short ride which is close to town and everexpanding.

Trail Directions
Shea Blvd to Fountain Hills Blvd. Fountain Hills Blvd through town toward Mcdowell Mtn Park. Trail Head is not marked so pay attention. About one mile outside the residential area of fountain hills, the road curves left at the bottom of the hill. The next pull out on the left (State Trust Land) is where the trail head starts. The trail is hidden from the parking area just on top of the knol.

This is not a singletrack. It is a moderate jeep road. I rode it once on the way to McDowell Regional Park. Didn't go to far, but it was all doubletrack from on top of the mesa where I could see several miles. Shame on this website for giving inaccurate reviews. Shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Route:
Anywhere you want to go

Intense drops on the tech part with a mini-canyon crossing which has put many people on their heads. Watch out for the hidden barrel cactus on the off camber turns at speed. Short but a blast!

Recommended Route:
There is an urban trail link through the back neighborhoods which lets you sample some bitch'in dirt ramps and BMX track on the way to the trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
McDowell Park, Pima & Dynamite
