It’s part of a fairly large system. You can climb a road to the top of Elden or use trail so shuttling it is an option but it’s not a multiple laps kind of set up. Little Elden is part of a loop that circumnavigates around the base of Elden and it’s also a part of The Arizona Trail. The AZT spans the entire state starting at the Mexico border all the way up to Utah.
gonna try to get out to sedona next year, def head up to flag and ride that trail
It probably won’t be done for at least two more years. We’ve been working a lot in Upper Sunset the last few years. I think the thing to ride is Sunset down to Little Bear, then loop around up to Shultz Pass and across the AZT towards Snowbowl Road.
I’ll start posting pics of some of our recent work.
Yup, at least in here we did. The dirt should seap into the cracks between the rocks locking them in place and the rocks will probably be visible. We figured this would keep them way more maintainable. It’s all just an experiment I guess.
This turn took a massive amount of rock to shape. We were calling it the four ton corner.
On a more bike specific trail we might go with all dirt as long as we have some groms that could tune it up every season.
