Unlike the other trails in the area I built this one as straight as possible on the most rolling terrain I could find. It's possible to get air in some places. Be careful of the descent at the end towards the palapas on the Hot Springs Beach. Better session this area before you ride it. Warren

Access Info

Look for entrance off the jeep road north of the big arroyo where they're excavating sand.

The section is ok, to connect with the rest of the trails a little bit of erosion difficult if you are going DH, but good if you go uphill.
