Overview

This ride offers great views and lots of technical challenges. You'll be riding through the historic Holcomb Valley, with interpretive areas available to stop and learn.

Description

This loop starts at the bottom of Van Dusen Canyon Road (3N09) and climbs to Holcomb Valley Road (3N16). Turn left at the intersection and then right on Harvey Mine Road (3N43). Follow the route clockwise, staying right at any intersections. This part of the ride is a quite rough 4×4 road that offers many technical challenges.

The trail has a lot of deep sand. Be prepared for the occasional hike-a-bike. Many jeeps coming up and blocking your downhill. 15.4mi — 3h 05m
