Trail Overview

This singletrack starts halfway through the east to the west section of BLM Trail 9188 and starts out in a wash. This wash has narrower, tighter turns than trail 9188. It exits the wash on the right marked with ribbon and rides atop the badlands before dropping down into a grey bentonite valley on fast desert singletrack. Cross through a gate and continue into a moon-like grey landscape. The terrain starts to have more shale-like rocks and a couple of small ledges, but no significant obstacles. This trail is very lightly trafficked, and this area can get flooding that washes away the tracks, so it's best to have a GPS track out there. At the southern end of the trail, it connects to one of the wash roads, or you can ride it as an out and back. It's a fun and fast singletrack that brings you through a really unique landscape, and you likely won't see anyone else on it.


There aren't any big obstacles on this route, just some loose rock and a couple small ledges. The hardest part is making sure you can find the trail because flooding often covers the tracks, so use a GPS track.
