Twisted Sister

Twisted Sister is a 0.7 mile section of trail that shoots off the Saguaro trail (Mine Trail) in the Hawes system. A lone pole without a sign marks the trailhead. It is currently an unofficial but legal social trail on Tonto National Forest land.

As its namesake suggests, Twisted Sister twists and turns as it climbs before dropping into the boulders and turning into Big Rock Trail.

Big Rock is all down, a mile and change of sweet cross-country-no-pedaling-required (but recommended) downhill. The turns are tight and so is the singletrack…cactus at your elbows and knees. (See video below for proof)

After cleaning the big wash (or attempting to clean it) you can continue straight and bomb down to the Bush Highway or hang a right (east) for a gradual climb up Wild Horse.

Twisted Sister, Big Rock and Wild Horse make a perfect connector route from Hawes to Pass Mountain and Usery Pass mountain park.
