Family Friendly Kids would enjoy all or most of it. There are a couple of parts they may think are a little scary but are very walkable. I take all brand new riders on this trail, and they love it every time.

Need to Know

Use the east parking lot. This trail is best ridden from north to south as part of a loop with White Reef Trail, Tipple, and Red Reef East. There is a small creek crossing just after the reeds. After the bridge crossing, there are a ton of goat head puncture weeds. Stick to the trail and your tires should be safe.

Description

Quail Creek is the same creek that feeds Quail Lake a few miles away. Hard packed sand is great for during or after a rain storm. It will take you through some of the most beautiful scenery like the rest of the trails in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve area.

The trail offers a lot of diversity packed into this little mile, including big and small dry drainage ditches carved by rain water to add easy variety, a tall reed singletrack section to make you feel like you're going really fast, a creek crossing, an off-camber boulder as part of the trail, and lots of fast, fun corners. The trail ends near a junction with Prospector and the parking lot.
