A superb intermediate trail with views, slot canyons, and great riding.

Nick Wilder

Overview

Dogs: Off-leash

Description

This trail can be ridden either direction and it's good either way.

Starting on the southern end, you'll descend a couple steps (some riders will choose to walk them), then you'll cruise down a nice, smooth, rolling trail to a bench a little lower than the one you've been riding. The trail is now very easy for the next couple miles, but there are wonderful desert features including slot canyons, big sandstone walls, and some shelf rock that you can ride above some major dropoffs to the canyon floor below.

The third canyon is the narrowest slot canyon. After than, it's smooth riding again almost all the way back up to Mary's Loop on the higher bench.

One final steep uphill stretch will not be rideable by most and you'll probably have to push it a short ways.

One of the highlights in this area!
