Hiking – Bike Trails
There’s one thing we love about living in the desert. We never feel closed in. Over 30 planned community and neighborhood parks including Bougainvillea Park, North Lake and South Lake Park provide us with places to play and meet with friends. The more than 20 miles of paths and trails keep us outside and active. Whether hiking or mountain biking through ravines, mountains and open spaces, or just taking a relaxing stroll along the shores of the lakes, it helps shape our life in the Estrella community. A few of us residents helped plan some of the trails we all get to enjoy today!

COMMUNITY HIKING-BIKING TRAILS MAP
F.I.N.S.,(Fantasy Island North Singletrack)is located in Estrella Mt. Ranch. To get there you go south from I-10 on Estrella Parkway 10.18 miles, turn R on Weststar for 1/2 mile, park at School and ride to trailhead 1/2 mi +. L turn at left turn lane is start of trailhead. This is a hiking, biking only trail.
It took 2 yrs to build it is well marked with trail signs that have the names of the trail or hub. Some of the signs will include the pucker factors 1 to 4, 4 being the highest. It should be a fun & challenging trail for Intermediate and up.
Beginers need some single track experience before riding this trail. There is pucker 3&4s on almost every trail. This trail will bite you if you don’t pay attention. We are going to build a section for the beginner bikers soon, puckers 1 -3). If you do all of the trails you will climb 900 ft or more in the 7 miles. Grunt, Kylie’s Crossing, Wayne’s World, Bone Yard, Harv’s Howl, Bear Claw and Hurts Donut will tax your skills while Murel’s mile, Joey’s Jaunt,Spent spade, Rusty rake, Kims klimb, Randy’s ridge and Base Butte will be just plane fun.
We are building two more trails Jim’s Assent just for the ardent climbers. It will take you to the top of the highest point of the mountain and will have a 4 pucker rating for exposer. I have been riding this trail for over a year and don’t get tired of it. It is our wish for you to enjoy the trails but please stay under control, sliding tires makes more work.
