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.

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