Description

Part of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. One of the better flat singletrack trails - it winds back and forth and will keep you guessing around every turn. It's fun on the way down but beware of all the cholla and cactus along the way. Mostly hardpack with larger rocks that can be used as jumps in some places
