“A nice out-and-back run with variable terrain.”— Rob Selina
The Mesa Loop Trail is a bit faint due to low traffic, with some loose rocks and trees but the grades are fairly constant. The view from the eastern viewpoint is worth the run.
The downhill section starts out smooth before getting quite steep and loose. Once the trail joins the arroyo, it is quite rugged and rocky. The final section leading from the arroyo to the road is smoother but punctuated with tall waterbars.
