Love this route on my bike! Not for the faint of heart and be ready for some tarantulas and snakes. I recommend full gear and a solid bike with plenty of water because you'll be hiking back up to ride this one all day!

Medium difficulty due to loose rock; wear hiking shoes if you have them.

I almost stepped on a rattlesnake where the grass had grown up on the trail a bit. Know what to do for bites before you hike here. I had talked to a park ranger before and he insisted there were no rattlers but my dirty shorts say otherwise.

This trail wasn't particularly difficult. There are some cool areas with small canyons. It's not very well labeled and it's quite easy to get turned around, so make sure you get and understand a map, or the alltrails app, which saved my bacon after I got turned around.

Not that difficult, started out without much to see but does take you through some nice formations and pretty areas
