An amazing network of singletrack trails, shooting-off in all directions. Thanks to popular Jeep Tours in the 1990s - many trailbuilders took advantage of the access road and carved-out sweet trails, appealing to all skill levels.
For first-timers - park in the Von's Rimrock Shopping Center, and head uphill past the gate. Continue past the two water towers and sweat up 230 vertical feet of steep, 18% grade hill. Continue following the sometimes steep, decomposed Jeep road until reaching the T-junction saddle known as the "Rock Man."(mile 2.35) Go left at the T and take your first visible left, which snakes alongside the Jeep road, later depositing you back on it. Make a right back on the Jeep trail and follow the first right fork you see, continuing to more swoopy singletrack. When going back down on the main Jeep road - take the first left trail sweeper and follow it straight until meeting the Jeep trail once again. Immediately merge left back onto the narrow trail and bear right, before cresting a short hill. After descending, you'll quickly see an "X" crossing and stay far right of it.
By now, you are heading down the way you came up earlier. Look for a straddling trail, next to the left of the Jeep road and take it until it drops-in(left) to more DH singletrack. Keep bearing right and soon the back of the water towers will be in view. Follow to the right and descend back on the Jeep road, at the open chainlink fence. Go left back to the car.
The great thing about the Goat Trails is the Jeep road interconnects all the trail offshoots....meaning it's hard to get lost, once you get your bearings(Highway III) established.
Short, punchy and lots of intense intervals, means you can get super-fit, riding these regularly!
