Chatter yesterday on the MTBR Arizona Forum about a new section of trail in the Gold Canyon area got me out of a warm bed on a chilly and moist Arizona morning, to explore… I met up with ChaseCo at Apacheland, and we set out to find the “Tech Loop.”
After casually climbing cougar we picked up pace on Lost Goldmine, soaked up the views from the top of K-trail before dropping into the roller coaster ride… The Tech Loop was a bit further down K-trail than we thought, but it’s easy enough to spot as long as you stay on K.
The Tech Loop is named for the tech features that are weaved into the trail. By no means is tech trail a continuous stretch of technical terrain, but more scattered tech features along the classic K-trail flowiness. Challenging features indeed, multiple lines. A great little spot to session. I can’t wait to get back to hit a few more spots when it’s not so Bon Jovi out there.
By the end of the ride, blue sky started making its way over the Supes. This place will always amaze me.
