Been a while since I did this one. Great ride. Some long, steep ups, full granny gear, and rewarding (rocky) descents. Love my Ripmo on this!

Rocky with some technical climbs and descents. Probably should be classified as a blue/black.

check app carefully especially at junctions where several trail signs are located. It can get confusing. At the desert hills trailhead, hard righ…

Great for a long ride with some uphills(a little walking) and a lot of great long downhills. Plus one of the best all-around views!

Cut the last part of the loop short by taking the Apache Wash trail instead of the last of Sidewinder

Great endurance builder. Extremely tiring uphills, but great flowy downhills. The only tough spots were some tight, rocky turns with quick up/downs

I showed up with a strained back and rehabbing my knee and this easy ride was just right. Great trail, really fun!

Added Apache Wash Loop.

Great area for riding! Trails are fun and challenging, typical Blue. If you want to increase endurance and climbing skills, this is the place.

Ocotillo Trail, fun but lots of climbing...

Fun ride despite the heat this mid-morning and loose gravel on the trail. Bring 2+ liters of water.

This was a great ride, the start prepares you for some amazing climbs, however the reward are the downhills.

1st Long conditioning ride!

A fun ride through a typical desert landscape. Some intermediate climbs but nothing too difficult. Went clockwise from the Apache Wash entrance.
Feb 17, 2018
Was a workout for sure. A good amount of hill climbs and equal amount of downhill runs. Will loose speed quickly downhill with bottom creek turns

Nice relaxing ride. Pretty rocky at times with a few semi intense inclines. Descents are of course fun.

Great ride! Nice flow, well marked! Got some great speed and the trail is greatly smooth.

Rode down the concrete path and entered the trail near the crossing. That big climb at the west took me out wow! Learning to choose my line better!
May 16, 2017
Fairly clean trail will good xc and climbing. Will come back.
May 8, 2017
lots of inclines and trails are lose and somewhat rocky.

Half at night. Steeper climbs than I expected. Great early evening workout in the shade and darkness!
Mar 10, 2017
I added the Apache Wash at the end to make it am 18 mile ride.

rode counterclockwise with Adam. Fun, but without any jumps, Climbs were clean and sustained. Maybe one or two places that I ended up walking.

awesome ride, nice cloud cover and a light sprinkle off and on
Sep 24, 2016
Awesome! Didn't get lost!

One of the best trails for summer. Do it closewise as stated with a 5:30am start and you'll be in the shade a surprising percentage of the time.
Aug 28, 2016
Nice ride! 90's/sunny.
Aug 11, 2016
I loved it. Not technical at all but it flows perfect. The climbs are spaced well enough to get good recovery before the next.
Dec 12, 2015
Arrived too late in the day, started cooking and ended up doing an out and back. Nice trail, not technical but some nice hill work.
Jan 25, 2015
First ride back to the trails. Tough uphill to start kicked my butt.
Nov 14, 2014
Had a great run clockwise. Pretty busy for a Friday morning, but it was a perfect day to be out. How the hell did someone do this in an hour?
