Description

Big Mesa trail is the jewel of the Nile of this ride. Take your time, stop to take pictures, go slower, and LOOK UP! Enjoy the scenery of this incredible ride. Sure, the trail is awesome and real buttery, but take your time and enjoy this one.

The old rebar bridge has been replaced with a wide, easy wooden one.
