Really fun, moderately technical desert ride. Nearly all sandstone, with some small dirt/sand patches to connect the sandstone slabs. Unlike Moab Sandstone, the rock here is more jagged and doesn't "flow" like the smoother rock in Moab. The trail is marked well in some areas with paint, while other areas only have rock Cairns to mark the path, keep your eyes up stay on track. There is a lot of optional drops and obstacles. Mild exposure, amazing views of the Mexican Mountain wilderness area. The trail winds through some old mining camps, with a lot of debris left to explore. Be cautious of open mine shafts. Great to add to a Moab trip. Can be ridden as an out-and-back or looped in with the dirt road.
