      Dry. Rocky in most places with loose rock at times. Good challenge. Had a to walk a few sections that transitioned out of a sharp corner up through rock. Loved the trail though, going to do it again. Lots of hikers but I was very courteous in order to give MTB'ers a good name! Reviews complain about the loose rock but, what the heck, this is Arizona!
