This is a classic loop with spectacular views. If you like fast and flowy singletrack, this trail is going to be up your alley. This may be an intermediate level trail, but user should be aware of numerous sections with exposure to cliff edges. This is definitely not a beginner trail and requires mandatory travel on sections of narrow exposed trail where a fall may result in serious injury.

This is a multiuse trail. Please give the right of way to hikers. Also, please stay on the trail and avoid damaging sensitive grass and habitat.

      Super dry and dusty. Becomes a bit loose on steep climbs with the dirt being like sand. Otherwise, running fast.

       Locals tell me it's normally ridden in a clockwise direction.

       Great trail with a little bit of everything. Dirt is really good right now. Popular trail but not busy at all once you're on it.

       Great trail for intermediate riders. Trail along canyon may bother those afraid of heights but easily overcome as it is a short stretch of breathtaking views.

       Stunning views. Great trail with flow and a few climbs. The river edge return has steep drop offs but very rideable and the path is plenty wide enough.
