Tim, Vern, Max and I rode on some new all-purpose trails out near Dove Mountain today. We rode for about 3 hours on almost of the trails, slow going mostly in part to the amount of hike-a-bike as you can see from the profile view
I am going back on Tuesday or Wednesday to explore some more, possibly trying to connect said trails with Honeybee and the Catalinas based on Max's beta.
Here are some shots of Upper Javelina.
The Wild Burro Trail, a main pedestrian artery into the area, connects with several other routes — including the Lower Javelina Trail, Upper Javelina Trail and Alamo Spring Trail.
There are currently 15+ miles of trails that have been constructed and opened to the public. These completed trails include Wild Burro Canyon (3m), Alamo Spring Trail (2m), Upper Javelina Trail (2.6m), Wild Mustang Trail (4m), and the Cochise Spring Trail (3.6m).
When completed, there should be a total of 30 miles of trails. Right now, many of them are big hike-a-bike trails, although I think some have some great potential. I guarantee we will be seeing a lot more riding in the Tortolitas in the future.
To reach the trailhead, take North Oracle Road or North La Cholla Boulevard to West Tangerine Road. Go west on Tangerine to Dove Mountain Boulevard. Then follow Dove Mountain Boulevard north a little more than four miles to a signed trailhead and parking area on the right.
