AZ - House Mountain - Trail Review with Map and Pictures
|Description - First
I suggest you do hot loop first for epic day instead of riding all the way
down 179. From 179 you take FS120. I think about 1.8 miles up
fs120 you will see 2 fire type roads on the right. You want the
second road. If you go too far you will start descending. Also
the right turn you take has another road approximately (say 50 ft away)
adjacent to it. Its very important you at least start out on the
right road. The road dows have a cattle grate at the start.
CLimb forever up the fire road that has some rocks on it for his and her
pleasure.. Basically just keep going straight unless you THINK you
have time to kill exploring all the spurs. Go straight all the way
until you dead end at a view. Look at the view, enjoy, U-turn back
down and take the FIRST major right road., Yes more climbing, Eventually
you will see some green tanks - You will see them like an apparition and
kiss them once you get there. Or just climb on top and hurt
yourself. The good news is its all downhill to the car.. The
better news is after you take a right turn half way down the sort of lame
fire road decent, the trail turns into way cool steep single track and you
will be going down so far your legs will hurt. If you want the easy
way out keep left or straight on the double track, or bear right onto yet
another cool section of single track. If you take the single track
just take a left once you get to another trail, then stay straight all the
way back to the dead end and follow the fire road out to Verde valley... I
lied you car is not there to pick you up. 3 mile up hill back to the
house - focker..
