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.

An amazing trail with a flavor all of its own. 8.1 miles from the Windmill turnoff to the dirt road before becoming Grafton Wash. Great views...

 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.
