Ever heard of Moab’s “Whole Enchilada”? Well this is Tucson’s version, and its arguably gnarlier and more brag-worthy. Plenty of fast descents with chunky switchbacks, but climbers will enjoy the challenging terrain. This ride includes trails such as Incinerator Ridge, Green Mountain, Bug Springs, Prison Camp, and finishes with the infamous La Milagrosa. (the full Lemmon Drop includes a few additional trails, such as Aspen Draw and Bigelow, but are not always accessible this time of year. We will get you as high as possible!) This is a Black-Double Black Diamond ride!! Your fitness and techy skills should be advanced.
Logistically, we make it easy to ride the Lemmon Drop! Leave a car at the bottom (end of La Milagrosa trail, on Suzenu Rd), and we’ll get you and your bike to the top. This ride is approximately 20+ miles, and takes 4-10 hours, depending on your experience and pace. THIS IS A NON-GUIDED, SELF-SUPPORTED RIDE. Please be responsible for your own route finding and bringing your own supplies (first aid, tire repair kit, food, 100+oz water, tools, etc).
Meet at Suzenu Rd/Milagrosa TH at 7:00am
