Trail Overview

This single track is a very narrow desert trail through sagebrush valleys and rolling hills. It is easy in the beginning as it goes through flat terrain with minimal rock. Then it parallels a ravine while steadily losing elevation. The trail is very narrow here, and with a slope off the side of it, so there is mild exposure here, but is only a couple of feet down to the ravine. Much of the trail doesn't have rocks, but there are sections with more embedded rocks and a couple of boulders to get over, but no major obstacles. Overall it's a fun, fast and flowy trail that is easy and good for beginner riders. The hardest part of the trail is how narrow it is above the ravine. You'll see some water in the ravine and lots of cows grazing in this area. There are a few cow trails here that look like intersections, so be sure to follow the main trail. The south end of the trail starts off Cherry Spring Road at the same entrance to Upper Dry Gulch. The north end of the trail meets back up with Upper Dry Gulch. All of the intersections are well-marked with trail signs.
