Fun, loose fast descent to edge of Mesa. Few drops. Tip of finger is a great place to chill. The pedal out not terribly fun. Continually rocky, slowish climb. Lots of work. Some exposure. When you have time it is a good added loop. Worth riding it at least once.

       The downhill section fun and moderate. The back uphill to start - terrible - as the ‘trail’ is barely existent in places
