A short, quick, flowy single track with some nice turns, one easy switchback and a small optional drop at the entrance. A great trail for beginners and still fun for intermediates. This area sees a lot of hiking and occasional equestrian activity. Cactus is less populated but it is not uncommon to encounter uphill traffic.

Access Info

There are multiple ways to get here. Most people enter the park via Borrego Canyon double track and then climb up Mustard road to the Four Corners meeting area. The trail entrance on your left, about about 30 yards down the main Whiting Ranch Road trail that connects to Four Corners.

Super dry and loose. New features added. Definitely slows down the trail. Deep loose dirt on the sides of the trail.

 Rocky and rutted so make sure your suspension isn’t locked out. Super fun but stay within yourself or you’ll be hugging up against some thorny shrubs
