Perl Charles Memorial Trail 1A – Phoenix Mountain Preserve

Perl Charles Memorial Trail

Perl Charles Memorial Trail

This is a technical singletrack loop with some very steep up and down sections located in the Phoenix Mountain Preserves. This trail is for advanced riders who like to bleed and leave their skin on rocks once in a while. It can be incorporated into your Trail 100 ride (see above description) or done as a 4.8 mile loop from the Dreamy Draw Recreation Center. As always with rides in the Phoenix area, the views are great of the Sonoran Desert. You will forget you are in the middle of the sprawling metropolis of Phoenix when you are out there.

Park at the Dreamy Draw Recreation Center. To get there, take the Northern exit from the Squaw Peak Freeway (51) and follow the signs. Once geared up, head past the ramadas located to the southeast and get on the sidewalk for a brief moment. You should see a singletrack to your left, follow to the 1A sign and shred.
