Very nice moderate loop single track trail follows above a large wash and returns the other side. No extended climbs. Two shortcut connectors for shorter rides. Well marked. Either direction good. MTB share the trail, riders from both directions, popular with hikers.

Access Info

      Recent heavy rain washed away much of the top soil leaving the trail much rockier than normal.

       Great trail with moderate effort. Smooth on northern half but your girlfriend may complain about rocky terrain on south eastern part of trail
