A fun alternate to the primary Margarita trail. Trail has some sections of exposure and varied technical and slickrock features. Make sure to do this loop either on the way out or back. It shouldn't be missed.

Trail was a little hard to follow at times, but otherwise in great condition. Road up was steep but easily passable.

reporter A few wet spots but mostly the "heroic" type of dirt, easy to avoid making ruts. The paint can junction markers could use new Sharpie.

 I am an intermediate rider and I think this trail is blue not black. Only got off the bike in one spot. There are much tougher spots on the blue trails in the area. Intermediate riders should check it out as the views are great.
