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.

Not exclusive to fat tire bikes. Several wood bridges and two to three foot drops. Very unique trail with great views. 95% hard packed.
