“This is yet another great loop out of the Sand Cove Trailhead.”— Ellie Avant
From the Sand Cove trailhead, take the Rim Rock trail southeast on the doubletrack. The doubletrack switchbacks right and drops down into Sand Cove Wash. There is a technical ledgy spot about halfway down the hill that will test the skills of an intermediate rider.
Drop into the wash, stay left, and then climb the hill on the singletrack to your right (south). At the top of the climb, it becomes doubletrack again. Follow this doubletrack keeping right at the junctions. This will lead you to a bike fence crossing.
After crossing the fence, take the trail to the left (Rim Reaper). This loop is a collection of short trails, but they are well signed. The sequence of trails from here is: Rim Reaper, left onto Rim Ramble, left onto Rim Rock, left onto Rim Runner, skip the connector, then left onto Rim Rock again, right onto Rim Ramble, right onto Rim Reaper, right onto Rim Rock and return to Sand Cove Trailhead.
It sounds complicated, but each trail is clearly signed at the junctions. If you miss one, it's all good, you'll still have a great ride.
