Extremely fun beginner-level trail. Would Recommend for families or single riders. Did experience some minor elevation changes, about 30 feet. The trail was mostly hard-packed dirt with occasional rocky areas, but did have some patches of sand. As a part of the Wild Horse Trail System, there were very clear maps at every intersection. However, some of the trails in the system are one way, despite not being marked one-way on the map. The trail system is located within Goblin Valley State Park, so park entrance fees do apply ($15 as March 2018). Ask about the trail at the fee station and the Ranger will give you a map of the trail system and directions to the trailhead. Extremely Fun.
