Nirvana Trail is about 26 miles long. The trail is great for mountain biking and normally takes a 3-4 hours. The trailhead is disguised on Quiet Rain Drive off Rancho Vistoso Drive. You have to look to your right and up where it begins under the power lines. The first mile is under the power lines, but look for the small rock cairn and single track after passing through the cattle gate which marks the boundary of the Rail X Ranch. This trail is constantly being improved and expanded, so be sure to keep a sharp eye for single track paths and florescent flagging marking where the trail crew is building new routes. This place rocks and has lots of side excursions.

You cannot enter the power line, nirvana, and honey bee trails at N. Quiet Rain Dr. There is a security gate. You cannot park on the next street over and walk to the trail because there is a sign posted at the trail reading:" only for the residents and says no trespassing."
