“A route through some of the area's largest rideable slick rock.
— Justin Dietrich
Keep the MTB Project mobile app
or your GPS unit handy because this one can be difficult to follow at times. Unmarked slick rock with scattered cairns can quickly frustrate a rider.
Just as the canyon opens from the Cherry Tank
, stay right and follow the cows across the wash and up the sandy bank. Take all available right turns to keep you going in the right direction. Once you get to the slick rock look for cairns and trail exits as you explore an almost moon-like landscape.
There are drops and rock faces that can be walked without too much issue, but because of the potential exposure risk in various areas, I marked this one as a Double Black.
