I live in Bumble Bee and ride my horse all the time on the BCT. It has great footing, very scenic and crosses the Agua Fria and Black Canyon rivers in several spots. It has everything to offer with mountain views, switchback for challenges, easy stretches and yes you will get you wet in a few places! There are nice trailheads spaced out where you can shuttle. There are good camping spots for thru hikers or riders near water. Also communities and a ranch along the way for supplies or over night stays. And of course you deserve a slice of pie at the Rock Springs trailhead !
When this trail is complete it will go all the way to Williams !
