Overview

Take Schultz Creek Trail to Chimney Trail to Moto Trail (lower) to AZT - Passage 34 - San Francisco Peaks to Secret Trail to Moto Trail (upper) to AZT - Passage 34 - San Francisco Peaks to Sunset to Schultz Creek Trail to complete this comprehensive loop.

Description

Ride up the trail system west of Schultz Creek Trail using a mixture of pretty well groomed singletrack and reasonable climbing grades. Add in some decent technical riding on the Moto Trail (upper) then head back up to the end of Sunset and the top of Schultz Creek Trail for the final descent. Overall, on this ride you'll find plenty of climbing that won't kill your legs to earn that downhill.

Great ride.....Parts of Secret and Upper Moto a little challenging(due to boulders) but they help form this satisfying loop 22.5mi — 3h 05m

Loved this! Except for the mistake I made riding up (i.e. north) on upper Moto, too technical to climb. Recommend ascending climb 3 then down Sunset! 21.5mi
