Description

This fast and flowing singletrack has beautiful 360° views of the mountains from the mesa, then cuts through trees for beautiful, winding, and scenic riding. The shorter rock garden sections add variety and difficulty, making this trail intermediate in difficulty. This one can loop back to the start or continue on Grindstone Ridge Connector trail as part of the 12 Hours in the Wild West course.
