This is a multi-use track that is mostly used by 4 wheelers and side by sides. It gets sandy in the corners, especially in the dry summer.
The Climb is steady and easy until you choose to leave the wash. At that point it kicks up into some steeper grades. You will have a few options to get out of the wash, All are 4 wheeler tracks.

      Definitely more of an ATV trail than anything else. THe loose fine sandy gravel makes for a slow pedal.

      The entire trail was extremely soft. You have to watch closely for the rock markers or you will just be going up more soft wash

       I used this to connect from Barrel Roll to Rattlesnake. Terrible idea.
