“A gradual climb (eastward) or descent (westward) with no significant challenges.”
— Karl Ingersoll
Named in memory of Doug Flynn, founder of Yuma Bike Club who died on a club ride, September 24, 2009.
One of a number of the ridge trails in the south part of the trail system that share the same basic characteristics, narrow, desert singletrack with no significant technical challenges beyond the occasional loose gravel and ruts from erosion. If you're riding east, you are climbing; if you're riding west, it's a downhill.
This is never steep, but it can be a great downhill run home if you're comfortable with a loose and unstable trail-tread. The long gradual grade invites speed downhill, and if you've got the skill to keep your speed up, the couple of climbs can be coasted up. If you're riding at speed, keep your eyes open for the occasional out of place boulder and a few rutted areas.
The ending point is ambiguous on the south end. Follow the wash back out to the canal road or make your own connection to one of the other trails and head back east.
