Trail Overview

No Name Ridge is a fun single track near the Elephant Skin Staging Area of the Flat Tops-Peach Valley recreation area. The trail follows a ridge line atop the soft adobe clay hills that make up the Peach Valley badlands. From the bottom trailhead, the trail starts by crossing the Narrow Gauge Ditch with a big vertical dip in and out of the ditch. Then the ridge line steadily gains around 700 feet over 2 miles, with lots of hill climbs and descents in between. The trail overlooks the Narrow Gauge ditch as you keep gaining elevation. This ridge line trail is very similar to many of the other adobe ridge line trails in the area. It is super narrow on top of the ridge line, with drop-offs down the almost vertical adobe hills on both sides of you. It climbs up a hill, drops down the other side, and does that again. It's fun to see the view of the badlands from the tops of the hills, and the view toward the forested mesa at the back of the adobes. This is a short ridge line trail and it meets up with the Teton Ridge Trail after 2 miles, which also has some steep hill climbs and descents.

Access Description

The Flat Top Peach Valley Recreation Area is a 9,700 acre trail system made up of adobe hills and rocky desert mesas with almost 100 miles of trail, and a couple open riding areas. The main staging areas are Flat Top, Peach Valley, and Elephant Skin Road, but all trails can be accessed from all staging areas. This is a highly trafficked area, especially on weekends, and has lots of blind corners around the adobe hills. It's best to visit in spring and fall to avoid the summer heat and winter snow. There is several days worth of riding here, and it's easy to make a loop of your desired length since all the trails are relatively short and connect easily.
