“A gentle, smooth singletrack tour through the Ponderosa forest.”— Jeff Fox
There are several small ponds along this ride that generally hold water, making it pretty dog friendly.
Once on the singletrack, follow it through some good camp sites and across a small dam. There is often wildlife including ducks, geese, frogs, and songbirds around the pond on the backside of this dam. Shortly after the pond you'll encounter a signed intersection with the Mavericks Loop trail. Stay left to continue on the Boggy Draw loop.
The trail rolls through the cool Ponderosa forest for a while with a few forest service road crossings. The trail is obvious at all of these crossings and should not cause any confusion.
Near mile 3 you'll cross the main county road again and begin a slight descent that flows really well. The trail then turns up for a short climb that will get your heart rate back up but is not terribly difficult. At the top of the climb, go through the cattle gate and drop into another slight descent that has a few small rocky areas.
Continuing on the singletrack takes you by a couple more small ponds and across an open meadow back into the trees. There is another signed intersection with the Bean Canyon Loop here. Stay left again and ride through a previously logged area. Another intersection with the exit of the Bean Canyon Loop comes in from the right, but stay left to get back to the parking lot.
Ride across the big meadow and follow the singletrack right back to the parking lot where you started.
The trails are mostly maintained by the Kokopelli Bike Club.
