“An ever changing experience of slickrock and singletrack.”

Description
Salt Wash is a parallel option to Sovereign, running between Copper Ridge Jeep Road and Sovereign.

Much like Sovereign, Salt Wash is a constantly changing trail experience, alternating between flowy singletrack and technical slickrock challenges. It has a narrower corridor and a more mountain bike feel than Sovereign.

From south to north the trail is generally uphill to its intersection with Sovereign; expect a lot of short, punchy climbs and descents along the way.

Salt Wash goes past Sovereign and descends down extremely steep and rock terrain (hike-a-bike) down to Sovereign ATV Loop.

Salt Wash has multiple connectors to Sovereign making it possible to ride many different combinations and loops.
