The desert is full of cactus.

A nice introduction to the Gold Canyon System. Ride it clockwise, except for the tech loop. Ride it CCW. There are tons more trails to be had out here, but if its your first time, this loop will keep you coming back!

Update Feb 1, 2017: No more Access at Apacheland. Park at Cloudview and ride south to Cougar.
