This is a super fun area and I can’t wait to go back! Its rocky and I like that. The one thing that causes a problem for adaptive riders is all the big ruts. I had to get help in a couple spots so it needs to be rated aMTB2. If you are by yourself, you should be fine if you stick the main trails and fire roads though. The route provided here is what we did. There is a section of single track called Crest Trail that would add a significant distance, but we opted out until further recon can be performed.

There are just a couple rock gardens that are questionable (see videos) so hesitantly i am rating this route aMTB2. It is almost all aMTB1 though. I rode the rock gardens by myself BUT they are definitely tricky. Support rider highly recommended.

This is a DH area. Advanced riders only! I have ridden Otter and Berm Trail both by myself but needed some help on Berm Trail the first time.

This route would be rated aMTB1, but the first section is single track and gets pretty tight. I have ridden it solo, but had to work for it and caught some cactus. Lots of cactus.

Most of this loop is wide open and easy, but there unfortunately is a significant amount of road time. Exercise caution. Wear a helmet and observe traffic laws. Be sure to consult the POIs because there are a couple problem spots. The route takes you onto a golf course in order to access a pedestrian bridge that otherwise only has stair access, a heavily rutted section where adaptive riders might need a spot and onto a brief section of private property.

This route is mostly fire road and double track and would be rated aMTB1 if it weren’t for two potential problem spots. Be sure to consult the POIs. There is a section of singltrack that was pretty tight with a ton of cactus last time i road it. Its been a while though and I highly recommend a support rider, at least for the first attempt. The second potential problem is a narrow bridge. My bike fits no problem, but its definitely tight.

This is my favorite loop (until we can work on some more trails) in PQ Canyon. It incorporates the famous Tunnels, Cobbles and some cool bridges. I have done all this on my own, but there are some really sketchy spots and i highly recommend a support rider on your first try.

This route is designed for solo adaptive riders to ride confidently in an unfamiliar area. It is comprised mostly of fire road and double track and you will miss a lot of what this area has to offer, BUT you will be able to ride alone safely, regardless of ability level. I will add more advanced loops for this area in future blogs. Happy riding!
