“Just okay mountain biking in the south western most portion of Cottonwood.”

DescriptionWe have all seen the commercial. The "Baconator" - a thick slab of juicy beef & cheese with copious amounts of crispy, yummy bacon stacked high on top. So we go to the joint, order one up and can't even find the bacon on that dried up wafer of...um...beef. You know, right!?
That's not going to happen here. Sometimes things just stink. So instead of celebrating our love for Mountain Biking by describing yet another great trail, I'm going to be truthful...this one just plain smells. While the trail is only 10 miles, it takes 20 to ride it, and while it did have a few sweet spots, their memory soon went limp by all the hard work the rest of the trail consumed. The name really fits I must add - I actually felt as if I was dragging a dead horse around in the desert. This trail could easily be called "long lost forgotten project".
It is a broken maze of double and singletrack hell, a hodge podge of puzzle pieces that don't fit. I believe in truth in advertising and here you have it. So why list this trail if it's so bad? Because it's there, and even the red headed step child deserves a little attention (used that phrase on a red head girlfriend once - who was a stepchild - we are not together today. I happen to like red heads after all, and mean no offense).
This is the worst trail I have ever ridden. But on a positive note it is a fantastic workout. I am stronger for it and for that I say go ride it. Just don't expect to have a great deal of fun with your workout. I am very sure some won't agree with my assessment and to those fine folks I apologize in advance.
