    The premire Tucson summer trail. Expect many tech festures, very tight and slopeing switchbacks and lots of shade. Even water crossing on one part of the trail. It gets a bit muddy but can also be avoided taking a doubletrack around it. For someone wanting to cool off from summer's heat, this trail is the best.
    Extend this trail by riding the loop thru the meadow to the west.
