This is a moto/OHV loop and has lots of sand and whooped out sections. Really shouldn't be on here...

       This is a moto trail. It has areas of heavy sand. Southbound on either side is still fun since it's downhill but northbound on either side is riding up whoops and has areas of sand. Probably better off riding up (northbound) on the Maricopa trail and then riding south on either leg of this trail....or better yet, just go back south on the Maricopa trail.
