National Trail: South Mountain (Phoenix)

Here we go again on National Trail (South Mtountain Park - Phoenix). This is a pretty sneaky trail, as the technical obstacles come outta no where. This trail is pretty sanitized, but there aint no way you gonna tame the "Waterfall"

No real owies, and the carnage could've been much higher. Although the list of broken parts included a bent dérailleur and broken break lever.

Pretty fun trail!

Here's a vid (no this vid wasn't made in '05 like it says) and some pics!

Mormon/National Trail on SoMo (Phoenix, AZ)

Two premier AZ trails in two days, WOOT! WOOT! This morning I rolled with some of the dudes with MTBR on National Trail on South Mountain. We rode up Javelina, continued on Mormon Loop, and took National up to pass before Buena Vista. Once again, the cloud cover to the east shaded us from burning spiky ball.

Here is a 2 minute vid of the ride:

Here is a short clip of a Dust Storm (Haboob)rolling in:
