Beginner 10%, intermediate 60 % and advanced 30%, 1.2 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional, but mainly ridden north to south. The north end of the trail starts off of the lower Mescal trail. The upper end of the trail rides several hundred yards on a singletrack before ending a a narrow eroded wash that has wall ride sections for higher skilled riders to rail on.

After the upper wall ride section ends you once again ride on a singletrack to the lower Canyon of Fools section. The lower section is basically a very eroded wash with ten foot high walls that are suitable for wall rides enjoyed by advanced skilled riders. Lesser skilled riders could have issues with some of the features since they are natural in character and if not ridden properly could end up in a crash that may cause injury. The preferred direction is northeast to southwest and the trail is a great connector for several other fun loops.

Access Info

Access off of Mescal to the north and Boynton Canyon road to the south. The middle can be accessed from the West end of the Yucca trail.
