Alpine just finished up the Desert Trail Bike Park Project in Mesa, Arizona. This park has great potential for the all around jump/slopestyle rider with multiple jump lines, pump tracks, and flow lines. Something we wanted to focus on for this project in the design process was to develop a bike park that could cater to 4 generations of riders (push bikes, bmx, 24'/26, and the full suspensions) but also break some good ground on the jumping side of riding.
The plan includes a 1-mile multi-use walking/hiking trail that is the key backbone trail designed for most user levels. A 1-mile long mountain biking trail will meander up and down while circling the central knoll to create a variety of riding conditions. The controlled, yet rugged bike trail will provide a true mountain bike experience.
If you're in the Mesa area, come check out the park at N. Recker Rd. and E Mcdowell in Mesa, AZ.
