Fun trail that follows along the wash. Technical rock gardens and limestone slabs will keep you on your toes. Can be ridden either direction, but starting near the Hidden Valley Trail and going down is probably best.

       The name says it all. This "trail" is crazy. The single track gets lost through sand, gravel, huge slabs of rock and rock gardens, and all the while twisting through the slot canyon like a carnival fun house maze. It is a beautiful trail, with amazing landscape against the canyon. Is it fun? Hahah, as much fun as a 7 year old in a scary fun house - it is very technical. Would I do it again? Maybe, but only when I feel like I need a grueling workout, and my focus and attention are 110%.
