Hey I've been thinking for a while now how sick it'd be to make a DH trail on a local mountain or something in north phoenix. I don't know the legality of this and or whether its possible. But i dream of having a nice trail close by.

DH time trial with slalom...

I'm kind of surprised RH hasn't posted it here as one of his time trials.

Spin your way up Shaw Butte on any weekend morning and then time trial your way down. Don't count your time unless you pass more than 50 uphill hikers that you can make jump out of your way. A least half of them must be looking at you as if you are an idiot and the rest curse at you as you fly by. If you are greeted in a positive manner you must turn around, go back to the top, and start again without re-setting your clock.

Any time under 5 hours or before the temperature hits triple figures is an automatic winner.

North Mt. just NE of 7st and Hearn can be done. I carried my bike up the Mt. to see an eclipse and rode back down. That was 14 yrs ago on a full rigid and I haven't been back.

Any particular places you have in mind, where it's legal to ride.
You know I dont. Theres some epic line possibilites at dreamy draw recrecreation area, But im pretty sure that'd be considered trail blazing.

There are plenty of epic line certainties that would not be trail blazing.

From the DD head east on 100. Take 1a and look for the fork back to Irregular link (it's posted) and climb it. When you get over that you can either head down Hairball or HAB up the upper Hairball and go down either BOTH upper & lower Hairball (to the west) or Upper and Lower Cheesegrater (to the east).

If both of those are too girlie for you then head over to the southeast edge of the park and find 8 heading south towards Squaw Peak. I'm told that's the toughest section in the preserve.

Where exactly is this? Would love to check it out. I always thought Upper Cheesegrater was the most technical line that PMP had to offer. Thanks!

you could hop on down to somo... there are a few that are good and not so busy. corona loma, and geronimo are decent. I haven't ridden north preserve enough to know more than the basics... but there is a pump track out at mcdowell... and flag or payson aren't too far away...
