Smooth and fast is the name of the game! 6.6mi loop of the McKenzie Ranch competitive race course. Please ride clockwise. It is the responsibility of all non-bike riders in all directions and riders traveling the opposite direction to yield to those riding clockwise.

Trail is in great shape. A few plants want fist bumps, but otherwise it is clean.

 Great trail! It’s a very nice break from the typical sand and cactus. The climbs is definitely worth it for the DH you get in return. Excellent Burms. Overall a great quality trail! Will be in me and the wife’s normal rotation.
