Hike, Horseback, and Mountain Bike

Coming down Javelina is fast and fun no doubt. It sure beats the crowded Pima Canyon trail back to the Pima lot if you parked there. Javelina is just one more sweet trail on South Mountain. Not a destination trail by any means, but a great warmup climb and a fun decent for just about any level rider that’s in some kind of shape.Courtesy of mtbikeaz.com

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.

More Info

Be courteous, informed, and prepared. Read trailhead guidelines, stay on the trail, and don’t feed the wildlife.
