A nice connector trail from one mountain top to another.

Description

This trail connects Picacho Peak to Atalaya Mountain on good singletrack with short steep sections.

Start at the top of Picacho Peak and after admiring the view head south to Atalaya Mountain on trails that feel like you are much further away from civilization than you really are.
