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.

       We rode Retail Sale CCW after first riding Cookies to Got Milk to make it a 12 mile loop. Really fun trail!

       Went I to this ride thinking it was going to be flat and boring but had some great technical riding and some fun features

       Classic loop. The section circumnavigating “Fire Sale” is mostly difficult rating IMO due to double drop and some techy climbs.
