“A wide open trail with some moderate climbs/descents.”— Russ Mathers
If you are a Strava user, you'll notice segments named after the base's B-52 nose art. In order from the start, "Cajun Fear." After the bridge, you'll come to a big hill to test you called "Judgement Day" then a small climb up "Renegade." This is followed by a big downhill section known as "Warbird." The next segment ends with south point bluff overlook "Die Laughin."
This is followed by "Diabolical Angel" then a segment that ends at an oil drilling pad, where there are always downed trees, known as "The Devil's Own." Then there is a stretch that starts at the oil pad, is muddy after a rain, and includes a hill to the big bridge "Mud Buff." Then a very short segment that cuts a corner called "War Hog." "Bombs Away!" has a steep downhill that ends where short/long trails rejoin. From the point where the trails rejoin the main road crossing is called "Ol' Crow Express" and the ride finishes up with "The Last Laugh." Trail signs to identify these segments are coming in the future.
There are historic sites along the trail including bomb craters (did I mention the practice range?), a Model T chassis, an underground cistern, and old wagon trail and a cattle dipping vat.
