Another MTB park brought to you by Maricopa Parks and Rec, but this one is way "KNARLY" compared to the McDowell tracks, which will seem like heaven after pounding this hell-route out. There are "technical" and "junior" loops here as well, but after doing the long one, if you survive, you will probably opt out? It was 'built for speed' according to the Parks Dept. (and is right next to the Phoenix International Raceway), but it is damn hard to get going fast cause it is SO rocky (and sandy).

08/08/07 This is another MTB park like McDowell, but this one is for the INSANE...it is "HARDCORE." Sleep well, stretch, bring tubes, and a good seat...Maricopa Parks and Rec did a worse job here, but thanks anyway...
08/08/07 The route is on "single track circle," but it is quite often 8 feet wide and some sections follow wash and "maintenance" roads, which I am guessing NEVER get any use after experienceing the BRUTAL track conditions...
