This trail is great for FAT Bikes; it is mostly in a wash, but a scenic ride.

Description

Low speed, low tire pressure, and low self esteem are all par for the course on this route. Fortunately, when you do finally emerge from the deep sands, there is a good chance to see some wildlife at a rain catchment. Loop Upper and Lower Chain Breaker together for a healthy (if slightly masochistic) mix of work and play. Marked as 8113C at Old Faithful and NAFTA. Best enjoyed by FAT bikes.
