A short ride through the red sands of the strip mine trail.

Overview

Description

This trail is a mix of doubletrack and singletrack. Much of it has been washed out as of 8/2013 but it used to be a pretty fun and fast trail. Beware as the bridge on the return trail is no longer there and requires hike a bike across the arroyo now.

The rain has made it very rocky ... Washed away a lot of sand so it's tough on your gear 2.8mi

It's best to go to the right, South, first then down the North side. It's more of a hiking trail at first but has good seed coming down. 2.8mi
