Race Route

Cave Creek Cactus Classic Race Route

This is the trail we made famous, home of our annual Cave Creek Cactus Classic mountain bike race. 24 miles of beautiful Sonoran desert, with 2,000 feet of elevation gain. Whoa cowboy, think you’re fast? Last year the race winner rode it in 1 hour and 36 minutes! Mortals should plan for 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 hours, bring plenty of water and $3 cash for entry to the Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area. Cave Creek Race Loop Map and GPX files
