A nice, scenic desert ride. The desert is more green this time of year.
The terrain is Beginner+ level, but is enjoyable for Intermediate riders as well because it has a nice flow to it.
Distance will be about 14 miles.
Time on trail of course depends upon the speed of the group, but with rests I would guess about 2.5 hrs.
The ride is pretty much an out-n-back, with a small loop mid way through the ride.
Directions from Phx: take I-17 north to Carefree exit 223, then turn right (head east) on carefree hwy. Continue east towards 7th ave. Parking will be on the large shoulder area just before 7th ave on your right, which would be the south west corner of 7th ave & carefree hwy.
Meet at 9:15am and we'll roll about 9:30am
