Please don't ride on trails after rains when wet, preserve trails and make sure they are dry before riding. Major wash area - be on the lookout during monsoon season as some areas may be impassable.

Description

This loop can be fast and fun, however, watch out for the sudden dips into washes that can be a bit of a surprise, especially with sand at the bottom. Some areas are sandy, so until familiar with the area, be careful so that you are still in control. This trail is not so sandy that it's not worth doing, it's just bad in certain spots.
