High Point

Fat bike only to avoid damaging the soft trail. A very cool, slow, methodical, techy, challenging trail that goes through sandy washes, up and down punchy climbs, tight corners, very narrow singletrack. No dabbing or hike a bike, this is a pedal only trail. This would be considered a black diamond loop. Very very narrow trail. A trail to use all your skills from pedal strokes to tracking slow balance moves.

Stay on the trail so you don’t track into any goatheads that are off trail. Or take a bag and collect the goatheads.
