Description

Starting in the west and riding east, the first half is generally flat, following the valley floor. Riders will experience a wide mix of surfaces, from well-packed desert earth, to loose sand, gravel, and loose on loose gnarl, along with areas with big, sharp, well-anchored boulders.

The trail becomes indistinct in several areas. Efforts to clarify the trail includes placing rock cairns to guide riders where the trail is not obvious. Keep your eyes open for these helping guides.

As you ride east, the trail climbs up to the eastern ridge where it connects with Champagne. As with all of the west to east rides, you'll face some demanding climbs over loose and deeply eroded trails. The payback comes once you climb out of the valley. Your reward is awesome views in all directions. And it's all downhill from here!

There's a nice vegetated area on 10-Mile Romp. Beware of leaning your bike near a cactus. When it falls, you'll be plucking spikes from your grip!
