Description

Sidewinder Road goes west out of the parking lot. You'll gradually climb for the first 1.35 miles. At this point, you'll encounter a short steep downhill. Bear left at the bottom and you'll continue to climb again for another 1/2 mile. After another short downhill, the road will flatten out. In general, Sidewinder road is used as a warm-up, beginner ride, or access route for the southern singletrack segments at Penitente Canyon.

Great singletrack segments take off from the Sidewinder Road. The Pinon, Dollhand Ravine, and Ute Loop trails are all very moderate open desert sections which start and end on Sidewnder Road. Wild Horse offers a great semi-technical loop when ridden clockwise.

At 2.4 miles from the parking area at CR38A, you'll come to a Y. After this point, the road continues onto private land. It is not recommended to continue west past this point.
