Out and back ride off of the southwestern area of Traverse Trail. Long steady burner of a climb to get up and fast descent on the way back. This trail can have a lot of locust (thorn bushes) depending on the time of year and maintenance. The top of the trail hits a fence on the boundary of the Valles Caldera.

Access Info

From Perimeter Trail or where Canyon de Valle meets the highway (not on this map)
