Trail shared by John Styrnol

A very scenic trail that makes its way along the edges of the plateau.

This trail is open to motor bikes. Be alert as you ride.

Description

Second Thoughts runs along the outer edge of the canyons and connects to both the lower and upper parts of Twist-N-Shout. The views through the junipers and occasional pine trees are very scenic. Watch for a few sandy spots and a big rock you'll need to cross over. Either of these may require a brief dismount.

Did this trail again today. I suggest which ever way you go, when you get to the bentonite hills, turn around. Otherwise the trail is pretty good.
