Description

Located in the heart of the metro Phoenix area, Trail 100 offers moderately technical and fast singletrack riding with a surprisingly non-urban feel. Traversing the length of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, also known as North Mountain Park, Trail 100 climbs, winds and descents almost 11 miles one way through a combination of tunnel systems and Sonoran Desertscapes ripe with an abundance of desert flora.

Riders on Trail 100 will notice a plethora of side spur trails that when added to the main trail can easily increase the mileage twofold of any ride. The terrain of Trail 100 is a mix of rocky and technical climbs and descents and fast winding singletrack. There are a good number of short and powerful climbs along Trail 100, making a ride here a lung expanding experience. Descents on Trail 100 can be loose and require advanced level technical ability to be ridden cleanly, with several dismounts along the way a probability.

The tunnel systems established in the Trail 100 area allow for a unique continuous ride from one isolated oasis of desert terrain to the next without having to negotiate crossings on busy city streets. That being said, if a decision is made to go one way on Trail 100 and return to the trailhead-parking area on city streets, extra care should be taken as the roadways are busy city arterials and traffic is fierce.

Additional Details:

Trail 100 is multi-use and horseback riders and trail runners may be seen in addition to other mountain bikers. Please be considerate on the trails and understand right of way protocol. Even though Trail 100 is in an urban environment, riders should be in good physical condition, ride with partners especially when unfamiliar with terrain and bring plenty of water when riding in the desert due to the harsh nature of this environment.

Basic Directions

Take Highway 151-Squaw Peak Freeway to the Northern Avenue exit. Head eastbound, following signs for the Dreamy Draw Recreation Area. There is parking and water available at Dreamy Draw. This access is located 1/3 of the way up the trail system but offers the best parking option. From Dreamy Draw it is best if riders take the Trail 100-Roadway loop to complete the full trail system.
