“A variation of the Cimarron Loop with the added difficulty of the rock gardens on River Rock Garden.
— Leonardo Pascual
This loop starts off the same as Cimarron Loop
by heading up Avendia Mirador de los Àngeles. After a mile, the road will continue onto Piedra de Descanso
as it gradually climbs further up the ridge.
At just over 2.5 miles (4.1 km), you'll reach the highest point. Look for the left-hand turn onto Waterfall Descent
. Follow this trail as it bends back to the east.
Once you arrive at the intersection with Vaquita
, stay to the right to continue down the River Rock Garden
trail. This is a more technical descent with large stones that can be slick and challenging to navigate.
Make your final small climb before cruising the remaining 1.5 miles to Ave Las Uvas.
