This network is made up of 3 loops all leaving the parking lot as the same trail for the first .5 mile, just before the top of the hill the Jr. Loop takes a left off of the main trail and winds its way up and down the hill on its route back to the parking lot for a total of 1.5 miles. Continuing on the main trail another quarter mile it comes to a Y, left is the Long Loop, 9.5 miles total and is a combination of single & doubletrack. It crosses back and forth through a wash a couple times before heading up and over a small pass. Itâ€™s a fairly rocky and technical descent and challenging trail for the remaining 5 miles. It climbs back up and over another pass via a doubletrack and then descends to the parking lot. Back at the first Y a right turn will take you on whatâ€™s called the technical loop. Although a bit steeper in some spots and maybe a little more challenging, its not much more technical than the long loop and is 5 miles total in length. This area is pretty rocky and the Long Loop is quite loose in spots, I preferred the technical loop overall.
