Overview

A scenic loop that encompasses Tusher Wash, Monitor and Merrimac buttes, Seven Mile Rim, and Uranium Arch.

Description

Ride west out of the trailhead for 0.1 miles and turn left. Follow signs labeled 7R from here. The route shares the 3D Jeep Loop to start before it turns left to follow Tusher Canyon Road. At Determination Towers, the ride bears right and south towards Merrimac Butte.

Around the backside, it weaves its way on the west side of Monitor Butte before turning east towards a climb along Seven Mile Rim. As the route turns back north, it descends quickly, passing Uranium Arch. After leveling out for a short time, the route descends again past Courthouse Rock, back to the trailhead.

Note: Tusher Wash can be very difficult to ride north to south due to sandy climbs during the driest parts of the year. Riding the loop clockwise will help avoid these climbs during dry times.
