I did alot of mountain biking in South Mountain park for a while.  These are photos from that era.

This is the trailhead at the end of the Jeep trail and the beginning of the National Trail / Mormon Loop.

 I had to try again.  There was a time when I was accomplished enough to make the turn and hop up the rocks every try.

This trail at the junction of the Mormon loop and National trail heads off to the Buena Vista parking lot and a long downhill ride winding down the hill on pavement to Central avenue in Phoenix.  The screen capture on the right shows the plateau and basin you can do the 45mph+ coast down into.

Once up on the plateau you can look back over to the north east and see Phoenix

There is a cave up in the Mormon loop basin that you can get out of the sun and play rock lizard on.

Mark's final resting place in the cave.  I brought sardines and crackers along in case he wasn't really dead.
