Visiting Rider Raves Over BCT
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.

I totally agree. I tood a trip with some friends to Moab last year for the first time, this after 5 years of riding mostly in the phx area but some up north and Tuscon. After riding two of the most acclaimed trails there, I realized they werent that much better than what I ride on a regular basis! We are blessed for sure to have our wonderful trails here. Theres not much better out there.
Here’s some ROAD for you. Recognize this turn? Enlarge it, print it and hang it in front of your trainer.
I’d give anything for an Arizona road. Heck, I’d even take Arizona dirt right now!!!
