“A nice desert loop with great vistas.”— Kevin Christopherson
The trail is well marked with maps at every major intersection. Start up the Sand Canyon Trail and in about 1/4-mile watch for the Blue Bike Trail - No equestrian use allowed - that branches to the left. This connector is clearly marked.
Follow it to the junction with East Rock Creek then take a right. From there simply follow the loop counterclockwise back to this point and then retrace your steps on the first two trails to get back to the parking lot.
If you want a longer ride add the Sand Canyon Trail to the east and/or the Rock Creek Trail that loops west. The Rock Creek Trail (not East Rock Creek) is more technical. Sand Canyon is easier. These trails are rideable almost year round, but get hot in the summer.
