This is a commercial horse trail from March to October.

Description

Run atop a massive landslide under The Sentinel. The trail is characterized by deep sand and little shade, so be sure to bring plenty of water and a can-do mentality. Due to the loose nature of this trail, be prepared for forward progress to be a little slower than normal.

Flora & Fauna

Cacti, wild turkeys, mule deers.
