Miramonte runs smooth along the bottom of the canyon between Miramonte Rim and Leftover Lane. The majority of the route is hard-backed sand, which occasionally loosens up where it crosses water drainages. But don’t let the smooth ride fool you, the far West section of trail has some very tricky obstacles that will make you wish you were on 20” wheels, before it takes a steadily climbing course up to meet Miramonte Rim. Overall it’s a dish of smooth with some tech on the side.

      reporter Lots of moisture recently and warmer temperatures make for lots of muddy sections that will hurt trails and our bikes if ridden.

       One of my favorites in the Lunch Loops. Great views and a true blue.
