Beginner 30%, intermediate 65 % and advanced 5%, one mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional singletrack that is twisty and pretty buffed. The trail crosses several dry washes and has an up and down character. The trail tread is mostly packed dirt and short slickrock sections. The Carroll Canyon wash is now rideable due to the addition of the old user created Double D bypass trail. There is no preferred direction and the trail is a great connector for several fun loops. Now that Sketch and Scorpion have been adopted Ramshead becomes a very popular connector trail.

Note that previously there use to be a connector trail between the northwest end of Ramshead and Scorpion. That viable trail concept is currently part of the Western Gateway Trail proposal currently being scoped by the FS. If you get a chance please contact Nicole Branton at the FS and let her know the old Cakewalk trail concept is a good idea. It takes you directly from Scorpion to Ramshead with only having to ride 30' of pavement.

       There is no way this trail is anything but a blue, on the worst of days.
