High Point

This is the easiest loop out here. Master this Loop first before proceeding to the other trails. This directional loop is done clockwise. It has a variety of terrain and is a good practice loop to familiarize yourself with the soils in the area. Plus tire bikes or even better fat bikes are highly recommended for these sandy loose soils. For your own safety: If you have any trouble with this loop at all, do not attempt any of the other trails in this area. The trails here are vary remote and difficult. You are on your own in this vast desert with vary limited resources and accessibility. The desert is a very harsh and inhospitable place. Be self sufficient and prepared.
