South Mountain in Phoenix is a a pretty impressive and technical trail system right in town. This is my latest video to be remastered into a modern streaming format. The video contains bits from two days (March 14th and 15th 2008) of riding here on the Telegraph, Mormon, National, Javalina, and Geronimo trails.
Man did we (Kevin, Greg and JD) have some fun on those trails. Here are some additional pictures and ramblings about SoMo. During our third day in Phonenix we did Goat Camp, but that is another story. I found some footage for Goat Camp that I never made into a video so I have put that on the get done someday list. But Goat Camp is another story.
So I finally got around to getting the video together from our couple of days on South Mountain. This video by far has more climbing scenes in it than any othe video I have done. While Greg, Jerry and I all had our moments in the sun, Keven seemed to always be putting on a technical skills clinic. I am always amazed at how well he can finesse stuff, particularly climbs. This video was also the first time I had some inputs from Will on how to put it together which was a fun bit of Dad, Son time.
December 2020 Update: Please check out this post for the remastered video up to more modern standards:

What a great day we had on South Mountain today. We started at the Pima Canyon trailhead and climbed the Mormon Loop to National and took that up to the Buena Vista trailhead. There was plenty of green on the mountain.
From there we took the Geronimo trail down off the mountain. What an awesome bit of technical singletrack that sees far less traffic than National. We then did a quick bit of street riding over to the Mormon and started a very technical and brutal climb back up the mountain. It was an excellent series of slogging, sessioning, and bike-a-biking. From there we took National back down to the Pima Canyon.
After some quick showers we were off for some Italian food and libations. Good Stuff !
