Description

Think Hans Rey. There are plenty of hike-a-bike sections punctuated by sections of singletrack. Templeton runs the circumference of Yucca Flats. The west north west side of the trail is the most difficult, but there are unrideable sections throughout the trail. Of course, that's my opinion. You may think it's a breeze...

Technical rock garden the whole way pretty much, but fun. A lot of hike a bike sections, for me at least. Maybe be some can bike the whole thing up…
