Exceptionally fun and scenic loop trail around rugged Cholla Mountain. Be sure to take the short side route to Cathedral Rock. The trail is slightly harder than most of Brown's Ranch, but still suitable for beginners looking to build their skills.

Recent trail maintenance has improved the flow through some of the more sketchy off-camber corners.

 Great stuff--twisty and fairly smooth with gradual pitch. Can be ridden either direction. Cholla Mtn scenery is gorgeous.
