So you rode the AZT on an e-bike. Cool story I guess.Update on AZ trails, parks, preserves, etc.
I rode Highline Trail for about 7 miles in from Pine, with ebike, which seems to be the reverse of the intended direction, as at that point the trail got steep and extremely rocky, with large steps, so I turned around and rode back down. I would not have gotten as far as I got without assist, it was up the mountain the whole way. Very fun, but quite technical and the further up the more difficult the trail got.
Visiting the trailhead on a Saturday, in the middle of the day, the parking lot was nearly full, probly two dozen cars - but, only saw two pairs of hikers the entire day. Not one gave a darn what kind of bike you were on, everyone was polite, allowed me to pass, I thanked them, kept on going.
