A fun beginner-intermediate cross-country trail that winds through the desert. The trail is mostly packed, with short sections of soft sand. Most of the trail is fast and easy riding, but there are a number of short, fun, slightly technical rocky areas.

      Dry, descent is amazing. Rutting isn't as bad as it was last summer. Looks like some new lines available on descent. Not sure if a few bushes died...
