A 10 mile segment from Washington Park to Bonita Creek will be soon. Other notable areas to ride are from Hwy 260 to See Canyon, Horton Creek, and the Zane Grey section off of FSR 249A.

Closer to home PS Trails have maintained a three mile rideable section from the Pine Trailhead that heads relatively east to a beautiful lookout. This section climbs for 600' over that distance. Beyond this point it is a difficult slog to Camp Geronimo with some rideable sections and some hike-a-bike sections that are in progress of being improved. Expect lots of rock and steeper grades.

This section would be considered an advanced trail traveling east beyond the lookout. Total distance to Camp Geronimo and FSR 440 is approximately 10 miles. Spring and fall you will meet many through hikers here as this is part of the Arizona Trail.

Many spectacular views to the south dot this trail. Sections of trail to the east pass through the where remnants of the Dude Fire can still be seen.
