“A mostly smooth trail featuring lots of singletrack with only gradual elevation changes.”

The majority of this trail is smooth hard-packed dirt. The ride starts off going uphill, but it's barely noticeable, except for the fact you can't figure out why you aren't going as fast as you think you should.
The trail winds through the desert and cactus. After 2 miles you'll cross over the Powerline Road
. The singletrack continues on the other side of the road. There are a few other road crossings, and you follow a short section of the road for a short bit. There are no signs marking the trails, so stick close to the GPS route or use the MTB Project mobile app
The high point on the loop is a windmill and after all the "climbing" that you did you are treated to a fast smooth downhill all the way back to Powerline Road
where you started.
