About Hawes Trail System: This is an excellent site for cross country riders because it is one of the least rocky paths in the Phoenix area. There are a lot of twists and turns around cacti screaming to kiss your shins. The Sonoran Desert is very beautiful, with vistas of Red (McDowell) Mountain.
Check Out & Support The Hawes Trail Alliance. It is a non-profit organization that was formed to help maintain, enhance and expand the Hawes Trail System to be enjoyed by bikers, hikers, and all outdoor enthusiasts.

Gear I use when riding:
- Smith Optics Forefront 2 Helmet – most breathable, best looking and comfortable helmet on the market
- Smith Optics Ruckus ChromaPop Sunglasses – comes with two lenses for when the light drops
- GORE Wear MTB shorts – durable, comfortable and the perfect length
- POC Joint VPD Knee Pads – Great for long rides becasue they breathe and don’t move around. Just enough protection without being overkill
- FiveTen Kestral Lace MTB Shoes – I dig these because when the inevitable hike-a-bike section coes, these feel like regular (but stiff) shoes.
- TREK Full Stache 8 – it’s a beast of a bike, maybe a bit much, but like McDonalds, I’m lovin’ it!
- Quadlock Case for Iphone 12 Pro – I have the entire set made by Quadlock: car mount, bike mount, armband, motorcycle mount. It’s the most versatile and substantial system out there
