Trail Overview

This is a great beginner trail starting in an OHV Staging area. You can get to this trail from a few different staging areas, but this is the easiest. This trail is a mixture of sand, rocks and whoop sections. Difficulty is dependent on the vehicle you are taking and the speed in which you are traveling. This is a great trail for beginner groups on motorcycles. This trail bisects a lot of other trails that are designated for single track and up to 50" wide. The area is best in fall, winter and spring. Summer riding can be pretty dusty, and the sand becomes very silty and loose creating traction issues in the corners.
