The beauty of this trail is that its rocky steep nature provides oodles of drops, launches and hucks as well as high speed flow with gnar tech at every turn.

The trail provides panoramic views of the Redington valley and the Coronado National Forest. After it rains, a lot of water crossing exist which make it a very scenic trail. A stop at the famous "Tequila tree" is a long held tradition. That is if you can slow down enough to not whiz by it.

       Good ride, especially after the tequila tree. Sadly the tequila was gone (just knew I shoulda brought a bottle) but some kind sole left a bottle of whiskey, yup, that'll do Smile The first half could use some brushing as there was a lot of prickly things grabbing at every part of you and I munged some of the techy bits simply because I was trying not to bleed. Pretty easy 1.5 hour from melino even with picture and tequila/whiskey stops.

       Somewhat over grown at the top. I'm still pulling cactus spikes out of my shins.
