Telegraph Pass Trail – South Mountain Park

Another trail for you “freerider” full suspension bikers. It’s a short 1.5 mile trail from top to bottom strewn with big dropoffs, loose rocks and hairpin turns. Very fun! Once you get to the bottom it is 8 miles to the Pima Canyon parking lot on Desert Classic trail (see description above). This trail is a little tough to get to. You can park at Dobbins lookout and ride the paved road down to it and then hike back up the trail and ride back up to your car. You can have a buddy drop you off at the top and pick you up on Desert Foothills Parkway. Although, it is a long drive around the mountain. You could ride up Mormon-National to the trail and then take Desert Classic back, which is about a 17 mile round trip.
