This ride is a combination of two popular rides, the “Greaterville Keyhole” and the Kentucky Camp/Gardner Canyon/Flume Trail rides. They offer a good sampling of what riding in Southern Arizona is all about. If you haven’t ridden in the Southwest desert, be prepared for a different experience. We don’t have smooth pine duff trails twisting through virgin Douglas fir forests, and many of our rides use more jeep trails and roads than in other parts of the country. But those jeep trails and roads are often technically demanding and steep; riding them can be as challenging as any singletrack. In general, riding in Southern Arizona is more challenging than most parts of the country thanks to a combination of rocky, loose soils and severe penalties for errors. Soft landings are few and far between; they are either hard ground or rocks, full of sharp, pointy things, or all of the above.


Course Description: There are two options for this race, (1) a 34-mile loop or (2) two loops for a total of 68-miles. The first option has 5377 feet of climbing, while the second option has 10,754 feet of climbing! Altitude of the ride is from around 4,500 feet to nearly 6,000 feet.
