Great Views and lots of flowing single track with some rocky sections. This trail tends to be dry and loose even after it recent rains.

       Lots of puddles and some mud after recent rains, rode great otherwise.

       FYI- this is also a dirt bike trail - hence the 2-4 inches of dusty dirt. Some of it is fun, but I would have to disagree with the PB article from 2018 that labeled this loop as “legendary” ...it’s more meh! Please list that this is also a dirt bike trail and then those who do not want to ride in fine powder can avoid it. This was even in June, after a huge rain storm the evening before last.

       Mellow climbing grade with some moto whoops and small water crossings through burnt out forest. Multi use trail so there’s also some horse poop in spots. The descent has Epic views, ripping single track, flowery meadows, with some rocky tech spots but nothing too sketchy.

       There is little shade here so be prepared in summer

       Excellent ride. Definetly best to do it as a counter-clockwise loop. Has very nice high speed sections with great turns for carving. Not technical but very fun.

       Trail conditions were good today. A little dry and dusty but not too bad. Rode counter clockwise. Coming down Imperial was fantastic.

       Great 10 mile loop 1700 vert. Nice grade to high point with only a few very punchy spots. Great flow to trail head. Dusty at bottom
