McDowell Sonoran Ride

Today Mark and I rode into the McDowell Sonoran Preserve (interactive trail map).

We went up the Desert Park trail, then up and over the pass on the Windgate trail, then down Windmill / Coachwhip, then south on Dixie Mine which dumped us onto a road. We rode pavement a few miles then jumped on the Lost Dog Wash trail, then Quartz, Paradise, Gateway Loop, and Horseshoe took us back where we started. 31 miles and 3850' climbing.
