Rustler’s Loop is a fantastic ride for all skill levels. Intended to be rideable for beginners there are several technique-education signs along the route. But don’t be dissuaded if you feel your skills might be wasted on an “easy” ride. The trail provides several more-advanced riding options, including at least one obstacle endeared “Sternum Hill”. The single track on the north end is particularly fast and flowy, hard-packed and bermed sand. Suggested riding clockwise direction via trail organization.

       I couldn't believe how awesome this trail was. The description is spot on, don't balk at this trail because it's an easy green trail. This is an awesome trail to add to the end of your ride if you're looking for a few more miles. It's easy and super fun!
