This trail is a must for riding at the Kokopelli trails. The descent from Mary’s is typically hike-a-bike, or a super-challenge for you downhill junkies. Drop down onto the single track and experience fast-flowy riding with several tricky obstacles. The south side of the bench provides you with incredible red-rock views rising above the Colorado River. There is another section of hiking pleasure along the north-west side of the rim, but the ride through the washes on the north –side are bermed and fun. Ride either direction, but be aware that traffic typically flows clockwise.
