Great 21 mile loop in the McDowell's for a little bit of everything. Very tough climbs, some fun descents & technical terrain. A little bit of everything!

It rained a couple hours before I did ride gateway loop. Most of the loop is very Rocky which made it it a little more challenging since some of the rocks were still wet. Nice views along the way. All in all a good experience.
