If you’ve got a bit of a wild streak, then mountain biking in the Tortolita Mountains may just be the perfect adventure for you. Start at the Wild Burro Trailhead and start pedaling north into the Wild Burro Canyon. Keep your eyes peeled for petroglyphs etched into these rocks long ago by the Hohokam. After a tough uphill, you’ll reach the Alamo Springs Trail spur, which you’ll take heading due east, and then dogleg to the north. Soon you’ll be back on the Wild Burro Trail. At its northernmost point, the path turns into the Loop Trail, which will take you back around to Ridgeline Trail. During this segment, you’ll enjoy some of the most exhilarating mountain biking in all of Arizona. After an impressive series of ups and downs, you’ll connect back to the Alamo Springs Trail, and retrace your tread marks back to your car. It’s a slog uphill (isn’t it always?), but once you reach that highpoint, you’ll experience what might be the most memorable downhill of your life.
