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!

Lots of climbing if going west to east. Some of it might be hike-a-bike for unskilled climbers. Occasional hiker and other mountain bikers. Very dry, plenty of loose rocks as usual for desert riding.

WOW no real trail any more - washed out in summer 2016 monsoon.. LOTS of rocks... almost to the point of not being fun anymore Major erosion (major ruts or slumping, large boulders and roots exposed due to erosion)
