Description [Suggest Changes]

This singletrack trail features spectacular scenery. With some flowy sections and some challenging volcanic rock sections, this section keeps riders of all abilities on their toes. Be prepared for lots of fallen trees and some thorny, broad gauntlets. With cleared tree falls and trimmed broads, it would be an awesome, epic ride.

The singletrack at the north end is tight and currently overgrown with tall grass. The trail is well marked with rock cairns and CTD trail markers. It has some sections with exposure on one side. The trail bed is very rideable with some babyheads and a few steep ups and downs. A little further on from the end are the Sapillo Group Campgrounds.
