In all honesty this trail system is horrible. Very few trails marked. One whole trail is nothing but a sand wash. Did 7 miles there and couldnt wait to get the hell out. Lots of hikers too.

long overdue update:

this is a nice rocky intermediate trail that climbs and winds around
Tuscon Mountain Park and connects with yetman trail.

you can make loops or ride out and back.....from Gesner/Starr Pass TH on east side to west side TH's(sarasaota & cat mtn)is about 4.5 mi.

you can also connect with trail that goes to 36th st. TH on east side.

check our this map: http://www.sdmb.org/TrailDesc/TMP_Map_11x17.pdf
and this website: http://www.sdmb.org/trails.html

not much for the advance rider..couple of technical spots but rocky and hilly enuff to keep you alert and break a sweat.

Another cool Arizona trail. They don't label trails in AZ (no trees, guess you can't put an arrow on a Cholla). Anyway. It's typical AZ. Long first climb, nasty little drop down. Interesting single track (they don't call a Cholla a jumping cactus for nuttin)and then a relatively easy cruise back. Oh yeah, forgot about the damn 3/4 mile part that goes through a wash. Always hated that part (talk about a quad burner). Made me tough, though.

Customer Service

Used to ride this one all the time. Park in the neighborhood by the East trailhead and head out.

There's a wealth of trails behind the Starr Pass golf club. Mostly typical, technical southern Arizona stuff. Rolling hills, short, (very) rocky downhills and singletrack abound. There is just so much out there. There are sections that are rolling fire roads and others that demand your best Hans Rey impression. Go ride this stuff!

Customer Service

Too Many to list. Just go with some water and tubes and get lost.

Very very unhappy with this trail. I rode Chiva in the morning and then drove to Starr pass before heading home. This trail really does not offer any hard technical riding..the only up was that parts of the trail are fast. Riding through the washes is a major pain. Maybe it was because I was tired from riding Chiva earlier in the day but I would never go down there and only ride Starr Pass

It is a ok trail if you live by it. should only take you 45 min tops to run throught the yetman trail. I don't like how you have to keep getting off your bike to lift it over the gates. Over all I recommend it to people who would like to get in to biking on trails. ( the wash verys for time to time. lose to packed)
P.S. There is a couple of cool places to catch air.

The main loop is pretty easy and gets crowded in the evening and on weekends. Good for a quickie, but if you're looking for steeper, more technical terrain, take some of the offshoots. Head up over Golden Gate Pass and take the singletrack to the left. It's steep with plenty of 2-3 foot drops and sharp turns. There's also some good connecting trails to Kennedy Park. Don't miss the super steep drop from the old rock house (labeled "kamikazi" in red on the AzORA map). You can easily combine portions of the main Starr Pass loop and the other trails to make a 25-30 mile ride.

Customer Service

Skip the main loop. Take some time to explore and find the more interesting and difficult trails in this area.

this isn't a bad one hour ride after work or if you just want a quicky. it certainly isn't a destination ride, but it can be some fast and furious fun.

Customer Service

make sure to go down the wash - i.e. ride the loop clockwise.

Dude man, this trail is a waste of time. Nothing to sink your teeth into. A good trail to get your girlfriend a little hot under the collar. But if your a man like me, try the peppersauce loop, it will make you feel like me(just not as manly).

Customer Service

doesn't matter what direction you go, its always weak!

I pretty much ride this trail every morning before work. It's a great hour workout. There are a number of trails to explore off the "main" figure eight. It's a trail for beginners and experts. Scenic and definitely a desert mountian ride.

Customer Service

Do the figure eight. Should take a little under an hour. Unless you're really Macho like the Fred in the first review.
