Across the canyon from Alien Run, this 10 mile loop rolls with very smooth single track, with emphasis on climbing the first half of the trail. Great views are abound here, showcasing the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado. This trail is very well marked with smaller inner connecting loops, making each ride as different as you want it to be.

Access Info

From Hwy 550 North from Aztec, turn right on Hwy 173 East. At MM 2, turn left and park at the motorcross parking lot. Take the dirt road just off that parking lot and head North for approximately one half mile to reach the trail head.

First time riding this trail. It was hard to find but, very well marked when you start. Fun trail, watch out for loose dirt and sandy areas.
