Arizona Flagstaff , need riders singletrack

Recommended Posts

Hello

My name is keith, i live in laughlin , nev. I love to ride in the flagstaff area during there riding season. this year I will be coming up there alone most of the time. I would like to get a list of riders that would like to do singletrack. i know the area well. I also would like to leave my rvv in the riding area and preferably ride from it . ( two bikes are plated ) ,. anyway i would gladly rent a spot from a local up there. Just want to have fun and enjoy the riding up there with others. I am an "a" rider so if you want to abuse me I would be in for it. Thanks and hope to here from anyone that want to do singletrack up there. PM me and i can xchange contact info.

Send me a PM when you're thinking of going. I'll do the same. I may have a small group in Sept, but otherwise I may be making a solo trip or two.

I am heading up to Flagstaff on July 10th and 11th. I know of some trails up there but would like to find some more single track. If anyone would like to meet up that weekend or share some trail info let me know.

Flag is shut down now due to the fire. Well, Wing Mtn and the airport are still open but it is dry dry dry. Let's not ride here until the rains start. I'd hate for the wingnuts to have any more reason to get the forest circus to ban us outright.

I kind of figured that. Hopefully rain will come soon and shut the fires down.

Yeah it's super dry up here right now. It's been dry like this for a few weeks.

This was a few weeks ago and I don't even want to imagine what it's like now.

The fire is sad though, that's right in the area of the challenger and sugarloaf trails.

Yeah Janick, Stuart and I rode on Sunday (when we saw you drive by his place after our ride) and it was so so dry that even before we saw the fire we both said that that would be our last ride in the woods until it started raining.

Yup, looking at the fire map and looking at the fire itself...challenger trail is gone gone gone.

F-ing camper that started that fire. I am so pissed off right now have been for days. I love the Flagstaff area, spent many years up there going to school and working, not to mention riding my MX bikes. Lets hope some rain falls and helps us out.. Fire is good for the forests, but not when its started by a man. PS I am a Professional Geologist and have a degree in Forestry also. I would love to meet up for a ride with you and camp out for a few days, PM me and let me know the details, IF it opens up.......

Yes Sean that was likely me. We had a large group spread way out, I was likely the last one trying to catch up after we got seperated. The two behind me were turning back.

The gem of that ride was lower Arrastra. That is a sweet bit of newly recovered trail, we will have to do it when it cools a bit.

Temps are ok, in the upper 80's this weekend.

Keep in touch.

Live 100 yards from national forest, challenger approx. 2 1/2 miles straight up from my home. Cant legally access ? for 30 days. Timberline, chose not to evecuate. Trail is probably fine now, but major erosion when rains come?

Looking at the fire progression maps and based on observation, it looks like Challenger is gone, no?
