Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
Great loop, skip the out and back until they finish working on it.
Would you ride again?
Yes to the Alien Run Loop &
No to the Area 51 Out & Back. It is new and needs more work before it has a chance to win me over.
Any suggestions?
Keep your eyes peeled for the short technical detour onto slick rock.  It is marked on the rocks, but is not obvious.  If you zoom in on the map you can see it.  It brought a little Moab to the smooth single track we had been riding.  We camped at the trail head.
