Part of the Honeybee Canyon/Rail X Ranch system of trails. Great beginner to intermediate trail. 7.9 total miles of rolling singletrack through beautiful desert and rocky foothills of the Tortolita Mountains. Many miles of single and doubletrack trails offshoot from this loop.
From the Honeybee Canyon Trail take the singletrack that splits to the north approximately .7 miles after you cross over the powerline road. After almost two miles of riding north you will come to a dirt road called Edwin Road. Take this road to the west. You can either take Edwin Road about 2.5 miles to the windmill or turn off after approximately 1.5. This turn will take you to a singletrack trail that crosses over the road. Take the singletrack east to head back to Honeybee or west to go to the windmill. At the windmill you will start back east to honeybee. After you pass the windmill there are two options. Stay on main trail for a mix of singletrack and doubletrack. Take fork on left for a singletrack trail. Both meet up further down the trail. The singletrack on left isn't marked as well and can be hard to follow but is much more fun. After just over two miles the trail meets up with a doubletrack trail. Stay to the left. In less than a mile you will come to a fork in the doubletrack. Stay left to loop back to Honeybee Canyon loop. Turn right for an out and back to another windmill.
