Description

Keep your eyes peeled, this trail dots in and out of washes and after a rain it can be confusing without tracks to follow. Wild Horse Trail was recently rerouted due to sand wash. However, the reroute has cut the trail almost in half.

After a good rain, the wash is packed down and ride-able, otherwise it's a hike-a-bike. If the conditions are bone-dry, stick to Cathedral Canyon and New Trail as a more enjoyable alternative.

This trail is a good bailout option if you're spent from a Palm Canyon epic, or you've been impaled by a cactus on HBV and want to get home to your tweezers and pain killers.
