This area is a BLM area in development with IMBA as 10 miles of new trail go in over the next few years.

Local IMBA Chapter Team Dirt is actively working on this area and needs your help. Check out teamdirt.org and the calendar to get on board with a trail work day

The area is a hidden gem and after the initial investment in the area by the BLM over the next few years this area will not be quite as hidden
