WHERE CAN I RIDE

ONSITE

 

144th ST and Aloe Vera Dr

Scottsdale AZ 85262

By Appointment Only

WILDCAT, Scottsdale >>

Style: Novice to Expert, Variety of Terrain & Obstacles

Season: Sept-May

The WildCat Recreational OHV Area rests against the Tonto National Forest Preserve and features the unique distinction of multiple styles of single and double track terrain within a large basin. Bordered one one side by untouched wilderness and a scattering of rural housing developments on the other, you're able to traverse the interconnecting trail system to adjust riding goals on the fly. Lakes, rivers and reservoirs with trailside access dot the surrounding area, meaning you're never far from a cooling mid-ride dip. 

NEARBY

 

BOULDERS OHV STAGING AREA, Peoria

Style: Intermediate to Expert, Fast & Flowy Technical

Season: Sept-May

As the name suggests, experience pale rugged mountains, sand washes & black volcanic rocks using marked double track & unmarked single track trails. Trailside views of Lake Pleasant. Most routes require a GPS or a GPS app on your phone (we’re fans of the free app Gaia).

 

MESQUITE STAGING AREA, Fountain Hills

Style: Intermediate to Expert, Slow & Control Technical

Season: Sept-May

Take in scenic horizons, hills and sand washes while navigating striking granite boulder canyons. Technical single track sets a pace slow enough to take in yellow flowers, iridescent quartz, and shades of green from pale sage to vivid prickly pear. Breathe in that creosote!

 

ALO PIT OHV, Prescott

Style: Novice to Intermediate, High Desert Pines & Some Gravel Backroads

Season: Feb-Nov

Excellent summer riding with temperatures 15-20°F lower than Phoenix. Adequate challenge for beginners with rocks, planes and pines to please the rest. Campground accessible trail system that branches into more secluded riding areas.

 

SEVENMILE GULCH TRAILHEAD, Prescott

Style: Intermediate to Expert

Season: Feb-Nov

Excellent summer riding with temperatures 15-20°F lower than Phoenix. Plenty complete loops of second-gear single track amongst and around small mountain peaks. Trailside views of Lynx Lake.

WHAT TO EXPECT RIDING IN CENTRAL ARIZONA

TERRAIN & CLIMATE

Low and high elevation desert dominates Scenic State #48. Rock formations of granite and sandstone weathered generations of waters to form wide basins, buttes and exceptional canyons (some would even say grand...). From the Superstition Hills, rolling Tortilla Flats, to Four Peaks and colorful Sedona, to volcanic San Francisco Mountain Range and Bloody Basin buttes to the charming smile on Camelback Mt, you'll find yourself surrounded by memorable horizons. Expect hillclimbs slick with shale and granular pebbles, boulder canyons, loamy sand, sparkling quartz deposits, salty clay, blue skies with little or no cloud formation, river crossings, invisible quicksand, dried up wash beds, slot canyons, sandy whoops, powdered dunes, cactus forests in the lowlands and ponderosa pine up the mountains. 

The sun rules the land and skies, regularly heating city surfaces to a sizzling 180F (82C), just below boiling. You won't be surprised to hear summer is hot in a desert, however many are caught off-guard with its brutal intensity and unforgiving longevity. 3,000 people visit the emergency room annually for heat stroke, 250 are not revived.  Averaging most days in the 100's during the hot season May to Sept. Eventually, cooler seasons provide a remarkably mild winter featuring highs in the low 70's and lows in the high 40's. 

 

Though dry most of the year, up to 50% of regional rainfall occurs during the late summer monsoon season, with high elevations receiving up to 11in of rainfall in four months. Stay alert of forecasts as rainfall is known to send deceivingly swift floods miles downstream under otherwise sunny skies. A select number of year round rivers, natural and man-made lakes provide respite and prime opportunity for playful water sports like boating, tubing, kayaks and SUPs. Desert thunderstorms roll in like tantrums and should be savored for their brief chaos.

BIOLOGY

The iconic saguaro stands proudly upon the sweeping planes of the Sonoran. From regal to gnarled to comically whacky, they commonly live 175 years and easily reach heights of 40 ft (12m) tall. Hardly alone in distinctive shape, Arizona sports a diversity of cacti and hardy desert botanicals from yucca, Joshua trees, agave, prickly pear, ocotillo, cholla & sage to the sought after petrichor of creosote and chartreuse skin of palo verde. Lobster mushrooms commonly grow near Flagstaff, a treat for landlocked foragers. Scattered across the Mogollon Rim and Cococino plateau between 5,000-8,900 ft lives the world's largest ponderosa pine forest. Desert ironwood, cottonwood, oak, cypress,  juniper, mesquite and ash provide shady respite from the omnipotent sun. 

 

All desert denizens--not just plants--evolved  strategically to the challenging conditions of a low moisture climate. Hardy Gila monsters, scorpions, burro, herds of wild mustangs, mountain lions, crafty wood peckers, brown bears, prairie dogs, rotund beavers, river otters, cactus-dwelling owls, peregrine falcons, hawks, bald eagles, venomous rattlesnakes, trickster coyotes, jackrabbits, furry tarantula, mule deer, antelope and pot-bellied javalina all call this rugged land home. Twilight hours breath fervent life into the desert and see highest rates of activity. Aside from sunbathing reptilians, most species take cooling refuge during the day while predators prefer hunting under a deep velvet sea of twinkling stars.

 

POPULATION

Phoenix shines like a metropolitan oasis, boasting the 5th largest city and most populated capitol in the country (2023). Satellite towns of Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe & Cave Creek offer distinct vibes, from charming country to frenetic college town to slow suburbia. Currently enjoying decades of growth, Arizona's rural towns are evolving into the main character of their own stories. Icy Flagstaff enjoys full four seasons and houses the Lowell Observatory, while adjacent Prescott and Payson keep the Old West traditions alive. Jerome haunts us with it's delicately terraced streets and refurbished asylum--now a fine hotel and dining establishment. Sedona enchants with enduring energetic vortices and cooling red rock waters.

 

Precious resources like mineral deposits, copper, silver, granite, quartz and Casa Grand soil for citrus groves, cotton, cattle and grain have all played their part in shaping the region's evolution and providing a means for its people.  Living descendants of Navajo, Apache, Gila River Indian Community, Pascua Yaqui, Havasupai, Hualapai and more share generational heritage with the land. Marvel at the dedication and ingenuity of the regions oldest inhabitants as you retrace the footsteps of the Mesa Verde and Montezuma Castle cliff dwellers. Plenty of wild still resides in the land of American West, and the legacy of entrepreneurial brotherhood alive and well within the hearts of its people.

If you can't tell, we too, have come under the entrapping allure of this harsh, wild, and wide-open space. Join us in the rugged land we call home. Ride where jackalope play and the skies are not cloudy all day!
