Trail Overview

A fun and technical trail with tight, twisty turns through desert terrain in Westwater, Utah. This trail is full of rock slabs, rock ledges, and steep technical climbs with both loose rock and ledges to get over. Mostly a tight and winding dirt trail that goes in and out of ravines, through desert pine and sagebrush. It's a shorter trail, but will mostly be ridden in connection with Westwater Mesa Loop Trail for a longer loop, and can connect to the Overlook Trails for a longer ride in the Westwater trail system. It's a really fun and technical challenge in a very scenic area. If you ride the Arch/Westwater Mesa Loop counterclockwise, you will have to go up most of the obstacles. It could be easier to ride the entire loop clockwise to go down most of the obstacles.
