PHX - Wildcat Ride

I had today off and decided to run some singletrack at Wildcat, a truely awesome place to ride!! My buddy Eric just happened to show up and the two of us were treated to a brisk 38 degree start. Snow capped peaks in the distance.



Closer



There's one thing Wildcat has lots of, that's trails and hills.

Awesome riding today!



We did about 25 miles in 3 hours. Ended the ride in snow and sleet!

I don't mean to hijack your thread, but can you point me to a site that I can get AZ trail maps for dirt bike rides like the one you just did?

Another great ride NS. Nice to follow along while I am freezing my ASS off here in Wyoming.

Note to self:

1) Get lazy butt to Arizona "before" pond freezes solid.

2) Invite friendly AZ FF's to WY after July 1st and return favor of day trip routes...

Keep them coming NS, hope to see you soon.

Great vid's NS. That's the way to pass horses on the trail too, coasting with engine off. Nice touch.

Check with the US Forest Service. The Wildcat and a lot of the other areas are in the Tonto National Forest. I picked up a few of their maps about 6 years ago and have found them to be very useful.

Nice Terry! I almost fell off my chair during that first video. I'll watch the rest later.
