Family Friendly A fun rock drop at the end is a great challenge.

No trail sign on Moro Ridge side.

Description

Be mindful because there is no trail sign. This trail starts near the top of Moro Ridge. It is right after a section of Moro Ridge where it gets steep for about 30 meters and them flattens out again.

The trail is generally flowy, not too steep, and doesn't have too many rocks. It's a very fun trail for intermediate/expert riders to rip down or for a beginner trying to work his way up to more difficult trails.

The rut at the top is deep, but it is easy to avoid. After that the trail is in good shape. 16mi — 2h 00m

Sketchy because of it being rutted and lots of close cactus. 1mi
