Retail Sale covers wide expanses of epic desert terrain. There is a small amount of moderate climbing and multiple fast and flowy sections. The loop is roughly 8 miles. Most of the trail is intermediate with a few sketchy spots that would require advanced skills. Although this trail is not physically difficult, the desert heat can really take it out of you. Make sure you have enough water because the trail center you probably parked at isn't that easy to get back to if you get heatstroke etc.

Access Info

Turn off US 191 onto McCoy Flats Road. About 3 miles down the track you will see a pavilion and a parking area. The trailhead is well marked and there is an area map at the pavilion.

      Trail is in great condition after recent rainfall. Signs indicate it should be ridden counter-clockwise which seemed fine. Fast, fun, flowy trail...

      Major erosion in some places. The trail is still rideable but will be sketchy from time to time.
