Yesterday, David and I took an fairly easy MTB ride on both the Slate and Flume trails at the Cave Creek Recreation Area.
Since I live near there, we started at my house and rode East along Cloud Road to 32nd street then north to the Park. The trails are each only about a mile and a half long with Flume Trail starting in the middle of Slate Trail. We rode the length of Slate, then turned back and picked up Flume, riding South until we reached a service road heading back to 32nd Street & Cloud Road, then back to the house.
Round trip was about 17 miles and included a couple of fast down-hills and a few moderately technical spots — a nice morning’s ride.
