“A Kokopelli Loops "greatest hits" trail in the far western end of the trail system.”— Nicholas Shannon
From the Mack exit, drive south onto the dirt road towards a parking area. Turn right and drive Hawkeye Road to the west. Park at the small, usually empty parking lot on the left.
Run up a steep little hill on Hawkeye Road to the end of Lion's Loop on the left and the beginning of Troy Built. Continue west along the doubletrack for a few hundred yards to a dirt turnaround and the beginning of the singletrack.
Descend initially to a wash then begin a tough, 3/4 mile ascent to a high point overlooking Salt Creek to the west. The trail then trends back downward becoming loose and bottoming out in another slickrock drainage.
After 1.5 trail miles, pass a junction to the right: the exit point of the Kokopelli Trail from the Kokopelli Loops area. From here to Lion's Loop, Kokopelli Trail follows Troy Built.
There is a steep, loose climb immediately following this intersection after which Troy Built traverses a rim. After 3.5 total trail miles, begin a steep 0.5 mile ascent to Lion's Loop. Top out at a four-way junction with Lion's Loop and Mack Ridge.
There are several loop options for Troy Built. The most common is a perimeter loop utilizing Hawkeye Road to connect Troy Built with Mary's Loop, and Lion's Loop. This is great in either direction. If running clockwise, park at the small parking area between Mack and the northern end of Lion's Loop and head east on the road first to Mary's Loop. If running counterclockwise, park at the main Kokopelli trailhead at Loma and head west on the road to Troy Built.
