Description

Think Hans Rey. There are plenty of hike-a-bike sections punctuated by sections of singletrack. Templeton runs the circumference of Yucca Flats. The west north west side of the trail is the most difficult, but there are unrideable sections throughout the trail. Of course, that's my opinion. You may think it's a breeze...

Hard digger in the technical downhill above the stables due to exhaustion and not paying attention. Feeling pretty crushed but had a fun ride. 8mi

I enjoy a nice hike- a- bike section here and there, but getting on and off the bike every quarter or half a mile isn't very fun to do. Oct 5, 2014

The hike a bikes can be annoying, but when you know what you're getting into not as much. Worth it for some of the stupidly fun tech parts that are rideable, and a great test piece. Apr 12, 2015
