Gander is a lot like Windmill in that it has varied terrain and rides the edge of the mesa. Get ready for lots of technical climbs and maneuvering. This trail is a blast.

 Fun trail. As an intermediate rider it was mostly ridable by me. Liked the challenge and the scenery. Compared to Wire Mesa this is slightly more difficult.

 Great trail! I agree with the other review, it's more work that Wire Mesa, but I thought that made it more interesting. For being an unsanctioned trail, it's pretty well maintained.

 This trail is the hidden gem of Gooseberry Mesa. It's 8.1 miles from the Windmill intersection to where it crosses a dirt road and becomes the Grafton Wash trail. Most people do it as a loop with the dirt road or as a bigger out and back. Chunkier than the rest of Gooseberry but with much less slickrock. Views are amazing the whole time.

 I rode this for the first time last weekend. I loved it as an out and back. I especially like that it has a primitive feel and is not as well marked as Gooseberry North and South Rims. I also like the challenge of the prickly pear cactus that often seemed to be reaching out across the trail to pierce your tires. Gotta be aware and in control at all times!
