“A rolling, smooth singletrack loop with minor elevation gain and many loop options.”— Fv Fv
Once on the Shantz Trail, you'll pass the a junction with the Bajada Wash on your left, but keep going until you come to the Kennedy Trail. Take a left on the Kennedy Trail, and head in a general southern direction. After a couple intersections, continue straight on the Squeeze Pen Trail for a short distance before taking a left on the Bajada Vista Trail.
The Bajada Vista Trail is a short route offering views of the Sonoran Desert. You'll continue to climb gradually until you come to an intersection with the Wildhorse Trail and the Garwood Trail. Continue on the Garwood Trail.
From this point, it is pretty much a gradual downhill until you hit the Douglas Springs Trail. Take a left and then it's just a short distance to the parking lot.
