8.48 mile ride in a sandy wash

Beautiful ride mostly in 7 mile wash.
This ride starts just off of Hwy 313 near to Hwy 191
We parked at the first available (of two) parking areas.
The brush and trees are pretty thick for the first mile so
we rode along the highway fence to avoid the thick brush.
Once you have gotten past the brushy area you just follow
the sandy wash. There is no way out other than reversing your
tracks and returning to where you parked. There is very little
traffic in the wash because there is a jeep barrier about two
miles in from the highway. There is supposed to be a grotto at the
end of the canyon but we didn't ride that far.

Want A Longer ride?
7 mile wash "Y"s along Hwy 313 near the beginning.
If you stay next to Hwy 313 you will come to a large
culvert (10ft high) where you can cross under hwy 313.
Don't know just far you can ride - haven't been there.

1/2 (or less) of the trail is shared with motorized vehicles.
