“Sandy singletrack threading around and across arroyos with tight turns.”— John Geronimo
The lower trails are new, narrow, and somewhat loose. Equestrian traffic can pulverize the trail surface. Be careful not to wash out on turns - you can easily go over the bank.
The mesa top is smooth and flat cruising, while the lower elevations consist of many "V-turns" into small sandy arroyos.
The east trail's branches end at a major arroyo. You can ride down the arroyo from South to North (or vice versa) thus creating loops.
This is not a particularly technical area, but the sandy turns will keep you sharp and it is lot of fun to ride.
