Bob, a rider from New Hampshire, posted a comment under the Black Canyon Trail page after riding it yesterday. His comments exemplify a common sentiment after riding BCT for the first time…Sweetness. I just had to post some excerpts:
This is among the finest trails anywhere I’ve ridden, and I’ve been on quite a few around the country (from Santa Barbara, Sierra Nevada (incl. Downieville, Tahoe, Hole-in-the-Ground, Moab, Sedona, National, New Hampshire, Vermont, Guanajuato, all of which I love, but BCT is up there with my top 2 or 3…..)
Thank you so much IMBA and local trailbuilders – it boggles my mind thinking how much time went into this, and how did all those people get together for so long?!
My GPS logged 4 hours of movement time, 2 hours of pause time. About 3100 ft. of climbing total. This is an incredibly gorgeous place, and relatively wild – following a river through the desert mountains and canyon, and after 3 daze of thrashing around National Trail, what a sweet, barely technical, perfectly built to IMBA specs trail! I’ve met so many great folks riding here, and this website is the best I’ve seen. Thank you Arizona – I shall return as often as possible!
Thanks for visiting Bob. Arizona will welcome you again with open sun.
