This is a beautiful single track loop that follows the natural rock cliff formations northbound and even some parts of the south bound track. There are a few sandy areas so plus or fat bike are preferred, but a regular mountain bike will work. Please stay on the single track. Don't cut corners or make it a double track. There are areas of clay that can be messy if there has been recent moisture. This trail has some technical components to it, but you can always walk your bike through the segments that are too difficult. The trail is mostly a medium difficulty trail with a few hard areas. Park at the parking lot across the highway from Twin Peaks and ride the double track westward that parallels the highway. The double track will cross the highway and continue westward on the south side of the highway. Shortly after your reach the bottom of the decent and cross the wash, there will be a step double track on your right, turn right and climb the double track. Near the top of the climb, turn left onto the single track which generally heads northward up to Pinon Mesa.

Trail is in excellent condition except the northern part where the Cattle are destroying the trail.
