      The trail is split into three sections (east, west, & central), although while riding you really don't notice this. It is basically a figure-eight loop with a distinctive two-way crossing that separates the East Loop.

      The trail is almost all narrow, rocky, very technical terrain with a few hike-a-bike sections on the more difficult rocky sections. Estimate an hour or more for a pretty solid tempo loop. Ride backwards for a completely different trail. If you average 8 mph or better you are flying on this trail.

      If you want to test your rock riding skills then you've found the place. If you want to "try-it-before-you-ride-it" you can do the East Loop. It's still very difficult, but not quite as technical as the rest of the course. You can access this in the parking area that you first see as you enter the park. Catch the trail up the dirt road a few hundred feet and take a left around the Evergreen tree and right inside of large cactus patches.
