Not a good trail for biking. Too soft.

Soft sand and no real trail. Constantly used as a gun range. Not recommended at all.

Mostly level trail but very sandy in places. I generally start at the geothermal plant off Soda Lake Road to avoid private property. It's not very scenic and can be very buggy in the spring and summer but you can walk as long as you want in complete solitude.
