PLACES TO RIDE IN ARIZONA
Places to ride in Arizona. Sadly our two favorite venues, Speedworld & Grinding Stone, have closed over the years, but we sure are grateful we got to enjoy them while we could. Below are some photo's and info that we hope you enjoy. Stay young, have fun, PLAY!
Located just outside of Prescott, in the nicely treed, cool high country, and just under a 2 hour drive from the Phoenix area. From I-17 (North or South) take the Prescott exit, Hwy 69, heading west. Follow Hwy 69 into downtown Prescott, the road will turn into Gurley St. Follow Gurley St for about 1/2 a mile and turn right on Grove Ave. Follow Grove Ave for about 1.25 miles, it will turn into Miller Valley Rd. Turn left on to Iron Springs Rd and follow for 5.5 miles. The Alto OHV Forest Service entrance will be on your left. Shortly after you enter, there is a self-serve day use fee area and camping info. The day-use fee is $5 per car load.
Located just north of Fountain Hills. Follow the 87 north (Beeline highway) towards Saguaro Lake. You’ll go past the Saguaro Lake turn off, get in the left lane, take the next left (crosses over median-road thru bushes) and at the stop sign you’ll see the entrance across the southbound lanes of the highway, just slightly to your left. Follow the entrance in and find some shade. There are usually quite a few riders out here early. There are a lot of good trails and a wash that people like to rip up and down. We want to see it after it rains. Located near Saguaro Lake and has quite a few trails to venture on. We've been out here a few times with both our quads and our truck. The trails are nice, clean, and very scenic. To get here take Highway 87 (the Beeline) north of Fountain Hills towards Payson. Follow the signs to Saguaro lake, and turn into the boat staging area (before you get to the lake), just head straight back into the dirt. There are no fees to ride here.
