Scottsdale's Brown's Ranch Trailhead now open!


BROWN'S RANCH TRAILHEAD NOW OPEN!
McDowell Sonoran Preserve

The long awaited Brown's Ranch Trailhead in north Scottsdale was opened for public use on Monday June 10, 2013. Fifty-five miles of new and rebuilt non-motorized trails are now signed and ready to explore----and many more are planned as work continues to expand the system to the north and west. I'll be heading out there this weekend, so stay tuned for photos and a trip report.
Grand opening ceremonies are planned for Saturday October 19, 2013.
HOURS: gates are open roughly sunrise to sunset daily---a specific time schedule is available online.
FACILITIES: 200-car parking lot, restrooms, water, shade ramadas, equestrian staging area.

GETTING THERE:
30301 North Alma School Parkway, Scottsdale.
From Loop 101 in Scottsdale, take the Pima/Princess exit 36 and head north on Pima to Dynamite Road. Turn right (east) and go 2.9 miles to Alma School Pkwy, turn left (north) and drive less than a mile to the trailhead.

They really ruined a good mountain biking spot with all the trail closures, modifications and "improvements" -- if you can't handle a trail, try again, get better or go somewhere else. Don't just remove the obstacles, flatten and widen it.
