The 50 Year Trail is sure to please intermediate level riders and above! Sandy trails give way to rock studded packed sand, technical ascents and descents, singletrack and several drops. Running along the foothills of the Catalina Mountains, the 50 Year Trail accesses a variety of downhill descents ranging from intermediate to advanced expert in difficulty.

A popular downhill area known as the ‘Chutes’, featuring cactus studded twisting trails, are laid out much like mountain chutes on a ski area trail map and are accessed off the northern most point of the 50 year trail. Several smaller loops can be accessed off the 50 Year Trail, including the expert Deer Creek Trail loop. In addition, trail distance can be lengthened by 4 miles one way by starting at Catalina State Park.

Additional Details:

The 50 Year Trail system is not terribly remote but riders should consider bringing extra food, water and clothing as temperatures may shift dramatically and summer thunderstorms are not uncommon. There is a ton of cactus so bringing a repair and first aid kit is essential. The 50 Year Trail area is mixed use with Jeeps, Horses, Motorcycles and Hikers possible. Please be considerate on the trails and understand right of way protocol.
