Description

The 2nd Mesa is generally fast and smooth riding. There are the occasional sand traps to deal with but they tend to be quite short. There are some fun sections riding near the mesa edge on the southwestern side of the loop, while the northern side has some nice rock features, exposed bedrock and steps.

This is a great option to make rides longer from either the 3rd or 1st Mesa's. Trail Junctions #6 and #5 are at either end of this loop.

This is a nice little loop. Normally I take the stem to the six flags intersection and then hop on the connector to the 2nd mesa loop! There are a few challenging sections of the trail mainly because of the water washing out the ground. Use caution, as there are ruts in some spots! Also keep an eye out for loose sand! I've posted a video on my YouTube of the loop! You can check it out here: youtu.be/jsZnjux5ddw Sep 4, 2018
