Join Western Spirit on this incredible five-day and four-night guided mountain bike ride on some of Arizona's best trails. Conveniently located between the Bradshaw Mountains and the high desert of northern Arizona lies miles of singletrack. This mountain bike destination has a long history of excellent trail construction amongst an unbelievably stunning mix of desert and forest scenery. Home to the famous Whiskey 50 Mountain Bike Race, Prescott Arizona is known for its flowy and non-technical singletrack. Visit MTB Project to view some of the trails in the region.
After meeting in the town of Prescott, we will shuttle to Lynx Lake to start our first ride. The trails around Lynx Lake will be a perfect introduction to Arizona singletrack. Flowy, smooth, and well-built trail will allow us to meander through a thick pine forest. Today’s ride will give us a perfect chance to acclimate to Prescott’s 5,000-foot elevation over our ten to fifteen-mile day. After riding the Homestead trail close to the lake, we will have the opportunity to add a bonus five-miles on Salida Gultch before heading to camp at Lynx Lake. We take camping pretty seriously and our guides do all the cooking, cleaning, bike maintenance, and everything else so you can just focus on riding your bike and soak-up the incredible Arizona sunsets.
Today’s ride will take us directly from camp to the Ranch trail which is part of the more extensive Prescott Loop trail. Riders can expect big views while riding through a mix of ponderosa pine and oak. Today’s ride will take us past Goldwater Lake and onto trail #396. Similar to yesterday, all of the trails covered today have been well-built and consistent in their design and quality. Riders will be thrilled with the fun descent into White Spar campground where we will stay for the night.
