Trail Description
About this trail
Go West through the metal fence over one of the bike/horse gates. Follow
the 2 track for about 100 yards West. Look for one of the metal trail
markers on the left to let you know where to cross the sandy wash. These
trail markers are at every decision point. The start is quite bumpy but keep
going. 2 miles in is a Border Patrol camera tower and at 2.5 miles is a major
split off on the right. This is the start of a 3.5 mile loop that forms the
"lollipop". If you don't know the loop it's easiest to turn here and circle
counter clockwise although I think it's more fun clockwise. The Southern
most portion of the loop touches on the Mexican border and is very
interesting. Carry ID and obey signs, although I've never had any problems
with the Border Patrol or seen any wet backs. I usually do the loop 2 or 3
times making this a 12 or 15.5 mile ride.

Review: Not great in terms of singletrack, the majority of the trail is double track or fire roads. But as usual its better than riding on the road. I would rather ride the Hereford to San Pedro house route of the San Pedro River trail. It was interesting riding along the Boarder wall/ fence, would be perfect for a gravel or cross bike.

Review: To whomever wrote the description. Maybe you should refrain from using racial slurs. If you want people to actually take you serious, you should make your descriptions as unbiased as possible.

Review: Their backs would not be wet, as there is no river to sneak across in this area. They would still be illegal aliens, however.
