Arguably Gold Canyon's signature bike trail, best ridden North to South.

After a rest on Lizzard Rock, descend/ascend a deep arroyo, then traverse to where the real fun starts. A natural half-pipe awaits as the trail heads South, twisting and turning in and out of a steep, rock-walled arroyo. The final half of the trail heads West, through rolling and mostly downhill terrain. A must-do trail if you're only here for the day.

Don't forget to hit the Tech Loop enroute to practice your rock-riding skillz.

 Great all round trail, a lot of fun. Makes for a good loop when linked with goldmine, vortex, Gila monster etc.
