South Mountain Park Trail Map

Share/Bookmark


The current South Mountain Map that is wide-spread throughout the net has little to be desired. There is a much better semi-interactive, yet less used map of South Mountain hiding out on the City of Phoenix website. A PDF is available for download here (740 KB).

As a service to the hikers and bikers in Phoenix as well as all the visitors, I have created an interactive map of the majority of the South Mountain Park trails. Every trail included has been mountain biked and tracked my me. There are still a few trails I have yet to track. This is a work in progress, I hope you enjoy it — and share it!

Alta | Bajada | Beverly Canyon | Corona de Loma | Desert Classic | Geronimo | Hidden Valley | Holbert | Javelina | Judith Tunell | Kiwanis | Las Lomitas | Ma Ha Tuak | Marcos de Niza | Max Delta | Mormon Loop | Mormon (24th Street) | National | Pima East Loop | Pima West Loop | Ranger | Ridgeline | Telegraph Pass

I would love to get the PDF of the trails as the other maps on the net are lacking, but the link provided prompts for a password and anonymous/guest is not allowed. Is there another way to get the pdf?

The new trails on the West end of South Mountain are now named. You can see the info both in the newsletter (South Mountain Newsletter Rangerglyphs (2011, Volume 4) http://phoenix.gov/webcms/groups/internet/@inter/@rec/@parks/@parks/@nrd/documents/web_content/063268.pdf and the new detail map http://phoenix.gov/webcms/groups/internet/@inter/@rec/@parks/@parks/@nrd/documents/web_content/062880.pdf

I have also been using Google Map Maker to add the trails to the Google Map view. Most of the trails are now visible.

Regards,

Mark

Anyone know where I can get trails in the Phoenix area (mostly SoMo area) that are lised by difficulty? I am a new, and quite out of shape… Made the mistake of trying to ride up Devastator (32nd St) today, and found it waaay to hard for my level of fitness (lol).

Great help to bignner like me. By the way, what is the color difference means….red, green, orange, black… in your interactive map in South Mountain?

Hey i have a lot of first hand infor on the new trails in the west end 620 zone, many of which are simply un-ride-able to all except those with a death wish. many of them are very exposed and not even really a trail at times. technical is one thing, these are another level all together! also, mine drop is also called eliminator II on google maps and for good reason…

What are the best trails to go from West-East across the whole park? Searching the site (which I just found today and I’m hooked). I’m an intermediate rider, but am down to push myself.

I’ll be visiting Phoenix in a few weeks and would like to rent a 29er within riding distance South Mountain and spend a day there. Any recommendations on a decent bike shop close to the mountain. Also, recommendations for trails/route. I’m a strong XC rider, comfortable on black diamond single track…no free riding. Any input would be appreciated!
