Beautiful trail winding through cacti and rock features parallel to Wildhorse trail but slightly more technical. This 2 mile long trail is 100% rideable in both directions and has great views of Four Peaks and Red Mountain.

This new trail held up well to recent Monsoon rains. It's all packed down and in great shape.

 I believe this trail’s actual name is “High Horse Trail”. Best ridden west to east in combination with an out and back on “Wild Horse Trail”

 I must have had a dyslexic moment when I reported that it is best ridden west to east as I meant the opposite. There is a 200+ ft elevation loss going in the east to west direction. It's always more fun when your fueled by gravity.

 This trail is a lot of fun. Technical level is in the middle of Wild Horse and Horsetail. Kudos to whomever cut the trail.
