INTRO

A mild but extremely popular climb in the Phoenix area. This is a good hill to ride on a TT bike while training for the IRONMAN Arizona Bike Course

Best done as part of a longer ride - many local group rides ride up the Beeline Highway, turn right on to Bush Hwy towards Saguaro Lake, then ride through the Salt River canyons to get to the pass.

There's plenty of parking along the climb (it's a very popular mountain biking spot).  Tonto National Forest passes are required to park at the rec sites here, but we didn't have one and were fine. 

Traffic is very heavy, especially on weekends. The road surface is great (9/2021) and there is a designated bike lane along the entire road.

It was disappointingly short. I went up and over and back up and over, it wouldn't be a bad climb to do reps of. It's short and gradual. The better options are the climbs on apache trail. They are a lot bigger and longer
