Why would you go on a multi-day mountain biking and camping trip in the Sonoran Desert? Because simply put, the desert delivers.
Whether you’re looking to cruise on flowy singletrack or push your limits on technical rocky descents, there’s a trail here for everyone.
There’s something special about experiencing the desert by night, such as the sounds (hooting owls, chirping crickets, howling coyotes), the bright moon and stars, the surrounding shadows of giant Saguaro…
After a long day of riding, you’ll spend the night relaxing around a campfire with your fellow riders reliving the day’s most epic moments. Warm sunshine and a cup of joe will wake you up in the morning so you’re ready to do it all over again.
It may be the wild west, but you won’t get lost riding in the desert with all the well-signed trails and wide open views of the trail ahead. Desert riding happens on decomposed granite and hard-packed gravel. The many trails of the area have flat, flowy options for beginners and obstacles like boulders and chunky rocks to challenge the intermediate+ riders.
The Sonoran Desert offers a change of scenery for those who have yet to experience it. When mountain biking season has ended most everywhere else, the desert sun continues to shine. You’ll get cool mornings and evenings, and sunny blue skies during the day perfect for riding.
