Trail shared by Zach B

This is a very sandy, narrow singletrack loop. Fat bikes are a must to preserve the fragile trail system in this area.

Features -none-

It is very important to stay on the designated trails to preserve the cryptobiotic soils that slow erosion. Trails are directional. Watch for the wood signs and directional arrows. One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Description

This is a very challenging loop designed specifically for fat bikes because of the massive amount of sand. Despite the difficulty, this is a very fun loop on sandy singletrack that the local residents do multiple loops on. A fat bike is required to preserve and minimize impact on this the highly erosive trail.

This is a flash flood area so be aware of local storms.

Bring cash for the nearby Point Grill for an after ride snack. Check the internet for their current hours.
