      Couple sandy washes to cross, a few very shorty sandy sections, couple areas this rider needed to get off and push up. Great for this beginner...

       Nice trail for this beginner. Some dry sandy washes dropping in and out of, a few very short sandy areas. Mostly dry packed single track with meandering turns. Pretty views. Freeway noise mostly forgotten while focusing on the ride. Heading north from the cottonwood trail has more downhill than uphill. One challenging climb at the end of Prospector on the return because of the rockiness of the trail. Easy push up for those of us that needed it.
