Trail Description
About this trail
This isn't a trail so much as a series of washes and rock slabs that makes for some interesting biking. While there are a number of prescribed routes, this place is really a free for all. Not all the designate trails are marked so it's best to go with a local or plan for a long day. This is very dry country, so bring more water than you think you'll need. It's easy to get kind of lost but impossible to get completely lost as you can always see White Mesa to the south and your car is between you and White Mesa.

Review: Lots of sand. Chunk everywhere. Bikes and bike parts like to break here. Do NOT bother with this area unless you go with a local.

Review: It's what you make of it. A giant slickrock expanse with all kinds of weird features. No real "trail." Kind of a "skills practice area."

I had a great time here last spring! I've been waiting for the temps to drop so I can do some more exploring.

Requires some exploring or local knowledge.

Review: There's a near infinite number of lines here, but unfortunately, many of them require a lot of trudging through deep sand. There's a lifetime of exploring to do here but, without the aid of local knowledge, you'll earn it the hard way. The washes and rock slabs contain everything from easy ledges suitable for new riders to full on free ride madness. If you know where to look, this place offers some real fun, especially if you want a variety of technical challenges. This is real desert wilderness, so come prepared (water, food, water, tools, water).
