The terrain tackled on this ride, although it begins and ends at the same place, feels a world apart from that traversed on the Dutchman Loop. It’s much more rugged, both in terms of the look of it and the challenge dished out to the mountain biker. The nine-mile loop is rated moderate in both aerobic and technical difficulty. Riding surfaces are quite varied, ranging from good gravel and dirt roads to deep wash sand, clay, angular rock, and cattle path. Like the previous ride, it’s a designated Bureau of Land Management mountain bike route, and directional signs are occasionally spotted along the way—not enough of them, however, to guarantee that you’ll stay on the route by trying to follow them. General location: Ten miles south of St. George.
