“A long, remote trail winding its way around the hills of sage country.”— Adam Kagy
Aberdeen Loop is one of the longest trails at Hartman Rocks. It's usually done counter-clockwise, but can be done clockwise as well. If you're looking for the ultimate high desert cross country experience, this is your trail. It's a pretty long run just to get to the loop from Bambi's, which makes the experience even better. Often times you'll have the whole trail to yourself as you meander through the remote feeling wide open sage country.
The trail itself isn't very technical which makes this a great long run.
