Challenging loop in the Prescott area with some good climbs and rewarding flowy descent. Mostly rideable with a few sketchy loose sections that may need some HAB. Great views at the top.

      Watch out for section with broken glass on the trail about a 1/4 mile below the broken gate. Looks like it was intentional.
