Sonoran Preserve South of Carefree Hwy on 14th St

Sunday, April 28th, 8am

N 14th St & E Dove Valley Rd » Phoenix, AZ 85001

This will be a nice loop ride through the Sonoran Preserve. We will climb a couple of hills, skirt a few cholla, and ride the wash for a short distance. Nothing too strenuous or scary, but the rattlers are out, and It is warming up, so please note the earlier than usual ride out time. There is one step-over, nice trails but normal AZ rocky in spots. Bring water for you and your horse. RSVP on the Cave Creek Saddle Club website

Williamson Valley Trailhead - Prescott, AZ

Saturday, May 18th, 10am

Williamson Valley Trailhead, Prescott AZ

At 5,200 feet, the Williamson Valley Trailhead accesses the east side of Granite Mountain. It has plentiful parking and room for trailers to park and turn-around. This loop ride offers impressive views of Granite and Baby Granite Mountains. Vegetation communities transition from grassland and chaparral to pinyon-juniper woodland and support a diverse community of Southwestern birds. The loop traverses a sculpted landscape of igneous granite that has been eroded into the striking formations typical of the Prescott area. Ride time approximately 4 hours with lunch break. This is really a rather moderate level ride, but because of the length, and up and down nature of the trails, we are giving this a Level 3 rating. Expect to see bicyclists on the trail, and hopefully water crossings. Bring a lunch and water for you and your horse.
