March Last Saturday Ride
Arizona Trail Day! – March 29th
Please join our Last Saturday Ride in coordination with the Arizona Trail Day- Tucson and the Colossal Campout. We will be meeting at 8:30 AM at the Pistol Hill Road trailhead (at the kiosk just South of Old Spanish Trail). We will do an out and back to Camino Loma Alta, including the newly opened (to mountain bikes) Hope Camp Trail. We will then keep going past Pistol Hill Road to Colossal Cave park to participate in the AZ Trail Day festivities, and folks can ride back to Pistol Hill Rd. at their leisure, or as a group.
The out and back to Camino Loma Alta totals 14 miles, and the out and back to Colossal Cave will total about another 9 miles, for a total of roughly 23 miles with maybe 2000 feet of climbing. The trail is rolling and non-technical. We will move at a relaxed pace, and no one will get dropped. If folks don’t want to do the whole thing they can turn around at any point, and there will be the option to drive from Pistol Hill to the park rather than riding on singletrack.
In the evening, the Arizona Trail Association is hosting the Colossal Campout at La Sevilla Campground at Colossal Cave. Join us for live music, food from It’s Greek to Me and Arizona Trail Ale by the campfire.
This event is part of Sirena’s 800-mile Arizona Trail Trek to promote the Arizona National Scenic Trail, the Gateway Communities, and the new official guidebook. More details on the AZT Trek can be found at www.aztrail.org/azttrek
