Trail Overview

This is a tight and narrow single track through the bottom of an adobe arroyo with several foot-high dirt walls. It's very narrow, and you have to watch out for hitting your handlebars on the dirt walls. It continues with tight twisty turns in the arroyo with spots of erosion where the bottom is eroded away so you have to wall ride on the dirt walls a bit. The second half of the trail opens up to the valley at the bottom of the adobe hills and goes through wider arroyos without the tall dirt walls. It climbs in and out of the arroyo a couple of times. Watch out for spots of erosion where the trail drops off into a ditch suddenly. It is a bit harder to follow this exact trail near the end as it goes in and out of washes and ditches and through several unmarked intersections, but it's easy to connect to other trails instead as there are many in the area. It eventually ends at an unmarked two-track. This trail is fun because it is something different than the many adobe ridge line trails in this trail system, which are all very similar.

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 of 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.
