A 450-mile ride was the final version, from which we narrowed it down to this base loop:
The loop can very immensely, but Flagstaff is always the hub of the loop. There are three areas that are bound to be a must-hammer section (depending on direction): Bill Williams, Casner Mountain, and Mingus.
Highlights of the route:
- AZT goodness
- Grand Canyon views
- Casner Mountain with some killer views of Sedona and Sycamore Canyon
- Mingus Mountain
- Prescott Loop on about 80% singletrack
- Bill Williams
To put the route to the test, Scott, Lee and I are going to start riding from Flagstaff tomorrow for 3-4 days.... It should be good.
