2. 50-Year Trail/Golder Ranch, Tucson
The Tucson area also has some excellent mountain biking opportunities, especially if you head over to the 50-Year Trail/Golder Ranch area. This is probably the best trail that this region has to offer because it has something for everyone. Beginners, intermediate riders, and advanced riders can all find something to enjoy and challenge themselves on this route. If you are just visiting the area, you can also stop by a local bike shop for a rental bike and get dropped off and picked up at the trail. Keep an eye out for sandy spots, snakes on night rides, and unexpected ruts. The trail is sometimes compared to the Honeybee Canyon Trail, but a more technical version of it.
