Description

Desert Dance consists of winding singletrack that weaves in and out of an arroyo from the parking lot up to the Lower Figure Eight Trail. This trail can be ridden in any direction and may be a good option for beginner riders looking to learn how to ride on less technical terrain. With that in mind, there are a few sandy sections that can be slick in spots. Additionally, Desert Dance allows you to connect into the more technical and fun Chutes-n-Ladders loop.

Note that this trail does parallel and often cross an active arroyo. During the summer monsoons, this arroyo sees flowing water which can erase sections of the trail and/or dump loose sand on it. The trail can be different each time you ride it for this reason.

Quite a few loose gravel sections when we rode it, but still fun!
