Primer. The first trial section built in Caliente. It turned out to be one of the most complicated builds so far due to the sand and soft substrate that accumulates at the base of the mesa. Meant to be ridden as a CCW loop from the trailhead connecting to Blue 1, but this is very fun to descend back to the trailhead. There will be a trail that connects to Primer from the south that will facilitate a nice, flowy ride back. Good for beginners to ride this as an out and back from the trailhead.
