This is a great trial. When it says "moderate", I'm not sure that's true unless I took the hard route haha.

Had lots of fun, with a great weather!

Would recommend it to people with prior experience in mountain biking- not for beginners.

Love this trail! It's my favorite trail in El Paso, since it's close to town short and "action packed" It has a little bit of everything, good challenging climbs and descents but all in all a very good mix that you can ride in approximately about an hour depending on your speed. Let me warn you even though it's a short trail still take lots of water with you you never now what's going to happen. And this is no beginer trail as well so if you don't think you're up to the task dont do it.

Not great for riding. Too many lose rocks, You'll be walking your bike a lot. The trail entrance is found down the street. Lots of new housing there. Kind of feels like your in there back yards.

Its quite challenging, it has some demanding slopes uphill, Mid level, and one that is Mid High level, with large rocks.
The descent is long and amazing. Watch out for for some hills that need some expertise level, and strongly suggested to walk them down (From a rookie point of view)
