      A network of very technical loops through rock outcroppings and atop chunky sandstone that make for challenging riding. Beautiful vistas all around, with views of White Mesa to the south. Some of the trails are not well marked so it’s best to go with a local. The area also is used by trials motorcycles.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      AKA: Red Mesa
