Description

North 40 is a fun, short loop. It's big on flow and small on tech. While most of the ride is on smooth dirt singletrack, there are a few interesting technical spots on slickrock and other rockier features. These are perfect for challenging beginner or intermediate riders.

Start by riding up the gravel road from the parking area, in a tenth of a mile you'll see a sign on your left for North 40, take this left. After a brief climb, you'll enter the loop. It's best ridden counterclockwise, so enter the loop at the T intersection.

The nice thing about North 40 is that none of the climbs are very long, and it undulates nicely. The trail is flowy and fast enough that a strong intermediate rider could complete the loop easily in 30-40 min. Therefore, if you're looking for a longer ride, combine this with another one of the fantastic trails in the area!

This is where Kirk battles Gorn.  No wait, that's Vasquez Rocks.  Still, very pretty.
