Trail Overview

This trail is a fun loop around the abandoned train track side of sugarloaf hill. There are many left-behind and falling-apart things to look at along the way. Old concrete pads, trash piles, abandoned bicycles, and even washed-out rail bridges with the tracks just hanging around. The route is mostly sand with deep washboard and whoop sections. Be on the lookout for sneaky rocks hiding in the sand, just waiting to take out a sidewall of your tire. A few other routes also parallel this one and cross back and forth across the tracks. It really is a choose-your-own-adventure area. Just be sure to air down before you start to keep from getting stuck. A few bars of LTE Verizon cell fade in and out.
