|Cactus Galore!- this part was a like a tunnel and they were big|
I have done the BCT everytime I have come out to AZ. The trail is a great one, it was built by hikers who also bike. It is in an area that has a bunch of ATV trails, and it is nice to ride on the man-made trails that go up and down and turn like a nice roller coaster.
This year I rode part of the trail I had never ridden. I rode from the southern end point of the trail. I didn't know if you could park where I did, but I parked in front of the gate and hoped for the best. The first part of the trail was really flat, going slightly uphill. Wasn't much to it until I got to there more practical end point of the trail where there is a parking lot, tables, grills. I then rode north to most southern part I had ridden before. I went another mile or so and then turned around and rode back. I had a good ride, thinking next year not to do that most southern part(but it is very close to PHX) and try and ride the new northern trails. The only thing this trail is missing is a loop, right now it is pretty much an out and back.
