Best between October and April due to sand and lack of shade.

Description

This is a classic desert ride that takes you across canyons and plateaus. Wild Horse sightings are common on the plateaus. The trail goes from being in an open valley to a tight canyon with rocks all around. There are numerable creek crossings that can be deep in the spring.

Since this is horse country, there are a number of faint side trails. Follow the bike tracks and signs and you'll be fine.

The parking area near the bottom has restrooms and maps and is a great place to start this ride. Combine this ride with Bingo and Reynolds Canyon for a nice long loop.
