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.

      One 12ish inch tree down on the Greenhorn side. Very dusty on the iImperials side. This is also a dirt bike trail!

       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.
