Exceptionally fun and scenic loop trail around rugged Cholla Mountain. Be sure to take the short side route to Cathedral Rock. The trail is slightly harder than most of Brown's Ranch, but still suitable for beginners looking to build their skills.

Bit slippery on the middle segment because of the sand build up on the corners. Fast and flowy on the bottom 1/3rd. One of the best trails to end...

 Great stuff--twisty and fairly smooth with gradual pitch. Can be ridden either direction. Cholla Mtn scenery is gorgeous.

 Good fun as a downhill (North to South). Easy trail with fast section and a few slow corners chill out at cathedral rock to visit with other riders.
