Pemberton – Coach Whip – Bluff – Dixie Mine Trail at McDowell Mountain

Difficulty:   EASY

Distance:  18.5 Miles

City:  Scottsdale

Here is a great variation on one of the best single tracks in AZ.  Pemberton trail is 15.3 miles, but by taking Granite Trail over to Bluff, then head North to Pemberton and then head Left at the Pemberton intersection over to Coach Whip and follow to Dixie Mine, connect back to Pemberton head left and connect back over to Bluff for the fast single track back to the parking lot.  We ran into a guy on the trail (about 60 years old) that referred to Bluff Trail back to the parking lot as “HOT FUDGE SUNDAE”.  This is fast, easy and great fun.  Clip in and enjoy the single-track back in.
