Trail Description
About this trail
Rode this one the first time September 14, 2002. Took a little used traile caled "Hurl" to the top of the meda west of Blue Diamond. The trip up was a hike, bue well worth the long ride down. Lots of rocks and steep drop offs.

Review: Rode 12 miles yesterday and its a blast. Very fast and scenic. Rented a bike from McGhies outpost and Blake is an awesome guy that will take care of ya if you need a rental. I can't wait to come back. Also the trails are very well marked with recent signage installed.

Review: What a blast this trail is. Even on a rental 29er I had a great time. The folks at Broken Spoke were great for the rental and advice/directions. I highly recommend the "Hurl" trail. It was quite a challenge for one used to east coast single track, but the view was worth the challenge

Review: Visiting from NC rode several trails over the course of my stay.... Tons of fun, friendly people on the trails not to technical but plenty of down hill sections to put a smile on your face and get you out of the smoky casinos

Review: Fun XC trails that can be linked to make some longer rides. No real technical challenges but the scenery is great. Good place to just rack up the miles.

Review: This was the first MTB ride I had done. I recently just got into the sport. I thought the trail had some challenging obstacles for a beginner but I got through them just fine. The up hills had a good burn but well worth it for the fun technical down hills with some switch backs. It was a 7 mile loop and we ended where we started. For more challenging trails just turn off the main trail onto the forks. It's marked well. Lots of fun.

Review: Great beginner trail! This trail is good, but you need more for the intermediate bikers.

Review: The first time I did this trail was about 8 years ago and I completely forgot how hard it was back then! I rode the first approx. 3 miles and promptly turned around...the downhill was really, really fun and was worth the burn! This is an awesome ride for those more conditioned than me!

Review: Only rode up the 3 mile smile section to get to the spectacular view as fast as possible. Pictures don't do it justice. It was a tough climb for me to get up there though. Every foot on the way to the top was either uphill or very uphill. Felt like a lot more than 3 miles. But going down was fast and fun. I didn't time it, but if it took 45 minutes to get to the top it was less than 10 to get back to the parking lot. Tough to keep the speed under control because it was so fun, so I ended up with one unplanned dismount. Fortunately I didn't land in a cactus.

Review: I think this is where I rode? Killer uphills out..FAST rocky downhills, and a killer view of the strip from one point! Only for experienced....you go straight out on 1 side, and are about 8 miles from the road at the far end, I know, my rental bike screwed me and I had to walk back in.....the other side of the road is all contained in an area, but still rocks.it is a ride you must do..it is the desert...bring plenty of supplies and ride early in the day..just in case.

Review: The climb from town is a challenge. There are lots of rock steps up and drops coming down, but all rideable for a strong, skilled rider. Once you're at the southeast corner of the loop, you can connect with over a hundred miles of fast (sometimes sandy) desert singletrack.
