Tortilla Flats bike ride is a beautiful out and back ride in the Superstition Mountain range east of Mesa, Arizona that takes you past Canyon Lake.

This ride is best to do during late fall, winter and early spring. During the warmer months the road is packed with boaters heading to the lake. Best to get an early start to avoid the traffic if you plan to ride this route during late spring, summer and early fall.

The road is in good condition. There is not much of a shoulder on the road so be careful. One of the bridges that you go over is metal as long as you slow down you won’t have a problem.

You won’t be disappointed. This ride is extremely scenic. If you plan this ride during March and April the wildflowers will be in full bloom.

On your way back after the turn around make sure you stop at the Superstition Saloon to fuel up before you head back.

Potential Hazards: From late spring, summer and early fall the boating traffic is extremely dangerous, some tight turns on the descents, and a metal bridge that can be slick.
