Ride of the Month: Hart Trail
WARNING! THIS TRAIL IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART, PUN INTENDED!
Hart Trail is a steep, gnarly, exposed descent, (climb?), that connects the bottom of the Sunset Catwalk to the Little Elden near Sandy Seep Trail. We recommend this route only for experienced mountain bikers seeking a significant challenge and who aren’t afraid to walk a section or two.
As noted above, you’ll need to make a loop with Little Elden Trail and Sunset. For a longer ride, consider connecting these two trails the other way using Christmas Tree Trail, Forces of Nature, Pipeline, Lower Oldham and Elden Lookout Road.
There is a planning effort under way by the Flagstaff Ranger District to potentially realign Hart Trail and part of Little Elden Trail to be a bit more sustainable and usable. Stay tuned for detail on this. In the meantime, get out and ride this rugged trail!
Propaganda: Be prepared for some of the best riding of the year!
The rain brought by the annual monsoon really helps to harden up trail surfaces in northern Arizona. These conditions are colloquially know and the “brown powder” in homage to skiing’s “powder days”. It is important to be prepared and plan your rides accordingly to take advantage of the awesome trail conditions.
As always, thank you sincerely for your business and support!
