      The trail was nicely packed after the rain. But some of the dips were a little washed out. Watch out for cholla! Saw lots! But overall, excellent!!

      Some of the sandy sections are extra loose (and deep) because it's so dry. Got bogged down in some and a little squirrely in others.

       I got approximately 10 miles for the loop...a plus tire/fatty delight. Overall, fun, twisty but sandy singletrack with some nice scenery. I run 3.0 plus tires, so was fun for me. BTW ran into another rider w/3.0s too, he agreed that the "fun factor" diminishes w/less tire float.

       It was my first time on a mountain bike trail ride. I saw plenty of videos on this trail before I headed out. The videos made this trail look really easy. The trail overall is pretty easy but as a first time rider it presented a challenge. I was not able to conquer the few technical climbs it has to offer. The trail has quite a bit of sand so I was winded and took a few breaks before finishing the trail. Definitely a trail for beginners but be watchful of the technical climbs after a blind curve.
