Ride/Hike the South at Quartz Trailhead

Join us on this ride and hike from the Quartz Trailhead at 104th and McDowell Mountain Road. This is a low intermediate ride of moderate cardio and intermediate skills. We will ride the Quartz Trail west to the WestWorld Trail, go around the golf course and head uphill east on the Taliesin Trail to its intersection with the Quartz Trail. This will take us to the next portion of the trip, hiking up to the Quartz outcropping to take in the beautiful view from there. We hike back to our bikes to return on the Quartz Trail which follows a wash back to the trailhead.
