This is a fast course, with some easy technical sections. Approximately 6.3 miles total, the trail head starts on the east side of the parking area and goes around the perimeter of the big field (Perimeter Loop). Climb up the canal bank and do canal drop, then ride ridge line to the left entry to the inner trail. You have the option to take "Easy Does It" to the left or "Pumbaa" to the right...Pumbaa is bit more technical with small dirt climbs and short drops. After Easy Does It, you will drop back in the dried up resaca bed in to "Blair Witch" and ride some tight single track through the mesquite. Come out and enter "3 Acre Loop" for some fast switchbacks along the resaca on your right. Next up will be "Dollywood", a short little section with a mini-ramp jump over a mesquite trunk. Take "Resaca Retreat" and avoid the falling apart wooden ramp on your left. Enter "Cactus Patch" and weave in and out of the turns ands switchbacks. From there, you will fly through "Shingletrack" then drop into "April Fools"..watch out for the quick climb up! After powering out, you will head into "Powerline" to get your breath before riding "Ridegline #2", then enter the final section - Serpentine. Great trail to ride any time of the day or night. Be sure to wear a helmet!
