“A fairly flat loop with larger progressive features than Sandy Wash. Optional Jaxon's Loop includes drops and doubles.”— Chris Spargen
At the start of the singletrack is a historic marker in memoriam for a pioneer child who lost his life. Past the marker, the trail is a bit more open than the nearby Sandy Wash trail on the other side of Salt Creek. Sandy Flow opened in early 2017 and provides a fun route with opportunities for higher speeds, the young nature of the trail will require more wheeled-traffic to bed-in properly.
There are around 30 technical trail features on Sandy Flow including larger berms, progressive jumps, and skinnies. Nearly every feature has a ride-around. Overall, the trail is a bit more difficult than Sandy Wash, but it's still approachable for newer runners. The western end of the loop connects to Jaxon's Loop, which adds about 1/3 of a mile of intermediate/advanced terrain and features (these features don't have ride-arounds).
