Hey guys, post up your favorite area's to ride at. Try to include directions for people who are not familiar with the area. I'll start it off...
Santa Rita Mountain Range.
I-19 to Sahuarita Road. Take Sahuarita East until you get to Santa Rita Road. Go South on Santa Rita until the pavement ends. When the pavement ends just keep going until you get to the mountains. Once your there, you will find hundreds of miles worth of trails. Some are very difficult and you would need experience. Others are very easy. Most of these trails go up and over the Mountain. This is a very rural area and cell phones will not work. So take what you need to survive in the AZ desert.
Depending on what sort of riding you are into, the backroad to Mormon Lake is a nice easy ride through the pines.
I-17 north to Pinewood Blvd go right through Munds Park (go speed limit, Sheriff WILL give you a ticket) Continue on Pinewood Blvd until you hit the dirt, there will be a staging area just after to your left. There are signs that will guide you to Mormon Lake, however, with the help of a trail map there are some other nice routes that you can take. Last trip we found a larger Cinder Pit which was pretty cool.
