Today was a near perfect day here in Prescott.
Michael and I left his truck at Iron Springs and Granite Basin Rd. We got a good warm up by riding up the pavement to the saddle where the new 332 trail crosses. We took the 332 north to where it meets the 346 and the 347. The 347 is one of my favorites, affectionately known by the locals as “10 jumps”. It is fast and swoopy with a roller coaster feel, and a couple of gotcha corners to be wary of. We then took the 348 back over to the 351and chased each other down to the lake. We road around to just past the Metate trail head then took the 349 south and around to the east where we hit the paved road again. We road up the the saddle, then bombed the pavement back down to the truck! It was about 10 miles of pure fun.
