Trail Overview

Lots of fun going up, down, and around short, steep hills. This is a fairly quick trail near Havasu Heights that is a lot of fun to drive. You can see part of this trail when you drive I-40 west of the Pilot/Love's exit. It is the one going up and down the hills just outside the right-of-way. Start by following broken pavement from Old Highway 95 to the south then turn off and follow a pipeline. Up and down hills, some of which are quite steep. Turn off the pipeline and follow west along I-40. Up, down and around. This is what we call a Love-Hate trail. We love the short, steep hills but we hate the washboard. Grrrr! Turn north up the pipeline and the worst washboard is behind you.
