    Climbs were moderately steep with rocks and underlying sand. Several technical rock outcrop drops and climbs. You''ll need to pay attention and pick your lines. One long sandy climb (walk) and one long very deep sand descent with multiple corners. One large ravine crossing "Nose-dive Hill" that is unrideable, accept by the most extreme riders. Great two-track stretches, fast in places, but be careful rocky sections and gulleys break up some of these stretches. Overall, a terrific trail experience, beautiful scenary, and lots of fun riding. Several 4WD road options to extend the length or loops to this trail. Stay on trail to protect cryptogramic soils. Avoid riding this area from late May through late August due to heat and lack of water. This area is the site of the 24 Hours of Moab Race during the middle of October.
