Description
Starts off on the top of the mesa with kind of generic desert riding until you get to the rim. Now the views are spectacular and trail becomes a fun roller coaster ride among small rock formations. Smooth and flowing, this is an example of some of the finest new-school trail-building around.

Note you can cut this trail off short by taking Prickly, but you'll miss all the fun parts.
