Description

Starts off on the top of the mesa with kind of generic desert riding until you get to the rim. Now the views are spectacular and trail becomes a fun roller coaster ride among small rock formations. Smooth and flowing, this is an example of some of the finest new-school trail-building around.

Note you can cut this trail off short by taking Prickly, but you'll miss all the fun parts.

Another fantastic stretch of trail for the new MTB rider. Safe, and scenery changes every 100'!
