Sandy Wash is part of the OxBow Trail System, the trail follows the north bank of the Salt Creek to complete a two-mile loop. Parking is available at a lot on the corner of 13th and Silver Street.

Although it's stuffed with many features of varying difficulty, the trail was designed with a wide-range of riders in mind. As a result, features that require dropping or jumping skills always have a ride-around, making this a great option for families and new riders as well as seasoned bikers.

Sandy Wash is designed to encourage skills development. Riders will experience tight corners, rollable obstacles, berms, plenty of opportunities for active bike movement and weight distribution, and a host of jump features (step-ups, kickers, and drops).

Given the minimal elevation changes of the area's terrain, some features will require pedaling to attain the proper speed. This allows, and requires, riders to dictate how fast they hit a feature based on their skill level. It's recommended that first-time visitors complete the loop a time or two to familiarize themselves and get comfortable before committing to any of the more advanced features. In all, there are over 45 Technical Trail Features from beginner to expert to keep everyone intrigued.

Riders can further test their skills on The Ridge, an adjacent ridgeline that runs above the doubletrack that weaves through the Sandy Wash Trail. Between steep jaunts flirting with double digit grades, and short descents that mixes in 2-4 foot drops/drop-ins, The Ridge provides the more experienced rider with an array of challenges.

If that doesn't appeal to your whole group, riders can stick to the easier Family Line that parallels along. Your party will be able to keep tabs on each other while finding the right challenge on the way back to the trailhead.

    Too much sand. To many jumps. Near river so floods easily.
