This is a rutted and rocky trail that appears to be more of a equestrian trail. Not very good for bikes

      Lots of erosion up top on both sides. Other than that, not to bad to ride/hike if you need it to make a loop.

      TERRIBLE TRAIL for mountain biking. Great for hiking, NOT for biking. NOT BLUE. MTB Project and trail forks are both very misleading. We are not amateurs. Pro/expert riders. Don't want someone coming out here expecting to have fun to be disappointed. Very pretty, though! If you want to do a ride out here, do an out and back from Cochise Trail #279 starting off Stronghold Canyon RD.
