    Thunderbird Recreation Area, Glendale, AZ-Any info?

    We are trekking to Phoenix for Thanksgiving and notice that we are staying close to the Thunderbird Recreation Area in N. Phx. I ride a mountain bike. Is that good for Mountain biking, any experience out there?
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I have a buddy that I lives a couple of miles away he says that the trails are "decent" in his words. I don't think that you'll be able to link up any measurable mileage, but it might be alright to mix it up for an hour. I would think that with the amount of development, the trails might be pretty crowded Thanksgiving weekend.
    With all due respect and deference
    Tequila is my preference.

    I live across the street from there. Those trails are narrow with a lot of rocks. There will also be a ton of people hiking on those trails.

    You'll have a better time at Deem Hills Park a few miles north:

    Thanks for the info on Deem Hills. Looks like a good suggestion. Not far as a commute. I like riding solo with no crowds, so appreciate the heads up on the crowds at
    Thunderbird. Happy Thanksgiving to you both.
