Pritchett Canyon to Hunter Canyon Rim

Pritchett Canyon to Hunter Canyon Rim Professional Review and Guide

"Riding up Pritchett Canyon takes a lot of fortitude. Especially when the sand is dry and the streambed is torn up. After slogging and hammering up loose winding slopes through deep beach sand and over babyheads with only brief sections of contoured bedrock, many spots at the top are simply unrideable.

Many sections demand that you step back, pick a better line, and try it again. Once at the top you'll encounter mineral deposits, more sand, a detour to a natural bridge, one of the most beautiful arches in canyon country, a rim ride on a technical singletrack over tight Hunter Canyon, and a portage down into Gatherer Canyon. Trail Surface: Loop on a very technical 4WD track. Ends with a short and somewhat rideable singletrack and a steep portage. Trail repeatedly crosses a streambed, which is dry much of the year. Surfaces are sand, babyheads, water-contoured bedrock, slickrock, hardpack, and loose rock."
