mormon mountain, one tough ride!




went and did mormon mountain trail yesterday, man, that is one tough climb! 1500ft gain in 3 miles of shaley rock. but, it is one sweet trail. shaded throughout, pine needles and lichens on the rocks, waaayyyy different then the much-used trails in flag. and the 780 mile arizona trail intersects it, which along with ledges trail, lakeview trail and a couple other smaller trails make for some great riding, and, last i checked the mormon lake lodge had $4 pitchers and great burgers and such. go check it out! the top was really green with groves of gooseberry bushes blooming and squirrels, deer, woodpeckers and hummingbirds buzzing around. highly reccomended! if an arm bike can do it, you should be able to, and the az trail is really plush and rolly. rock on, off to build bikes, steve.

Steve,
I'd like to try that trail. Looks fun. Sounds like Signal Peak in the Gila, 1600 ft in 2.5 miles! Way steep in sectons.
