This is my first trail with my new bike and my first trail in a few years. We took off from the Chuckawalla trailhead and had a nice decent to the wash but after that it was a hell of a climb up Turtle Wall trail. We did a lot of climbing and hand to stop a few times. Just so you know I’m kind of out of shape. The trails are very rocky and had to walk a few uphill sections because of the rocks
The view wasn't worth the trip up. For me it never is, the only thing worth the climb is the downhill. The type of downhill where you don't care what happens and you hope you don't break anything. Paradise canyon was a super fun ride but it has a lot of traffic. It’s filled with hikers and joggers looking for a little exercise before work. So we stopped our momentum going uphill a few times just the let the hikers pass. it also gave us some time to chat with the ladies.
