“A secluded trail connecting National Trail to Desert Classic.”— Philneu Neumann
Eventually you'll come to a dry creek bed where you'll have to ride in the soft sand for a short while. If you are heading in the opposite direction (north), look for the cairn that marks where the trail exits from the creek bed - It is easy to miss! Continue up the opposite side of the valley and over the ridge.
The next section down the mountain can be quite narrow, exposed, and loose in some spots, with several tight switchback turns. The trail lets out at Lower Corona de Loma which connects to Desert Classic. All-in-all Corona de Loma can be a bit of a slog, and I wouldn't call it a "must-do" at South Mountain, especially with trails like National Trail, Mormon Loop Climb, and Desert Classic in the area. However, if you have a sense of adventure, don't mind carrying your bike, and are searching for solitude, this trail is for you!
