Rabbit Valley Exit - Ride 2

Important Information: There is an old trail that crossed private land.  This route does not follow that old trail, but it was the one we intended on riding.  It is clearly marked on the Trail 3 as you approach the ridge overlooking the Colorado River.

Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
Great start on Trail 3. Trail 3 changes to Trail 4 and double track that has a few options. Look for the Rim trail sign at the top of the hill. Look for trail 8. If you make it through the sand traps you should have more fun as the trail gets more rideable.  This trail allows motorcycles so the trail can be wide and sandy (mainly trail 8 when we rode it).  Trail 3 was the best part.  The Rim section of the trail was pretty good too.
Would you ride again?
Yes to Trail 3, Maybe the rest.
Any suggestions?
Bring a good map.  There are a few dead end roads and trails after Trail 3.
