“A great introduction to the Phil's World trail system.”— Jeff Fox
After another short flat, stagebrush section, the trail does a short, slightly rocky, switchback climb to the mesa top where it continues it's flat route circling the front half of the mesa. Near the middle of the mesa there is an intersection with the Hippie House loop. The shortest, easiest route is to stay right and continue around the mesa. Hippie House loop goes off to the left and extends the ride by a few miles and then comes back in at this same spot.
Eventually the singletrack drops back off the mesa, recrosses the drainage over another wooden bridge, and back through the sagebrush to the parking lot.
