    Lake Havasu City

    There's good reason Lake Havasu City is such a popular Spring Break destination - set at the side of the lake of the same name, this town serves as a portal for all sorts of lake-based havoc wrecking, including long houseboat stays and speed-boating.

Description

The Starr Pass trail is a fantastic way to explore the Tucson Mountains west of the city of Tucson. Sonoran desert flora and fauna including giant Saguaro cacti abound here and views to the distant Rincon and Santa Catalina Mountains are quite good.

Starr Pass trail is moderately difficult with sections of rocks that can be tough to navigate. Several areas allow budding trials riders to ‘huck’ themselves from ledges but these obstacles are optional. The climb to Starr Pass is steep and washed out in portions upon an old Jeep Trail but the views are rewarding.

Ride is signed though numerous side trails can make route finding confusing.
