We headed Westerly from the parking through some overhanging trees.
After the trees you intercept the big sandy wash. Stay left initially.
There is a right fork at the very beginning that can also be ridden
but we stayed left to go to the Groto. The right fork goes under 313.
The ATV barrier is about 2.2 miles into the ride, Groto is 2.2 more miles.
Most of the ride is in the wash. There are a few rocky areas but not bad.
There are also some trails out of the wash that be used. There is very little,
if any, vehicular traffic. There are also two short side canyons that can be
checked out to extend the ride. >br>
