This is a great place to take in the landscape of the San Luis Valley. It's nothing too technical, but you can get some really serious speed on your way out. Keep an eye on your left for the 100 year old lime kilns, which are very cool.

When riding in this area, bear in mind that it's very isolated and extremely dry so bring more water than you think you'll need, an extra power bar and a first aid kit. I wouldn't recommend riding this alone as I did once when I took a pretty nasty digger. I was ok enough to get out but it occured to me that if the spill had been any worse, I would've stuck out there in the desert sun for a really long time. Probably would've been eaten by one of the bigfoot that are thought to live in the mountains to the south.
