“A gravel, double, and singletrack loop around Bartlett Mountain, great for excellent desert views.”— Jeremy Lancaster
Olympic Road turns into a doubletrack climb through a saddle on the west side of Bartlett Mountain, which is where the fun begins with a great non-technical downhill section. Continuing downhill, the trail connects to Sunflower Dr. and then takes a quick right to head north on Ducor Ave. Take a right turn on Olympic Road and then another right on to Campanula Ave.
Stay on Campanula Ave. for about 1.5 miles and hit another section of fun doubletrack. Pass the water tanks, continue through a wash, and then connect up to Avenida Del Sol heading south. Turn left on Broadway, head across Sunburst Dr., and then turn right onto Shadow Mountain, which heads back toward Joshua Tree. A right turn on 2 Mile Rd puts you back onto doubletrack, which crosses a wash and connects to several local streets back into town.
