A unique trail for Tucson that connects some massive granite slabs with nice flowing singletrack. Some big rolls, some challenging tech trail, a whole lot of rideable slickrock. Too bad it isn't longer.

Be prepared to constantly check your GPS. Cairns don't seem to last long up here. Watch for snakes in the warm months.
