Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
Last bit of the road is steep getting there.  Once on top of the mesa, you will see good spots to camp.  The trail was not marked with spray painted dots like Gooseberry Mesa or the Slickrock Trail in Moab, but it was pretty easy to follow once you find the start.  Most of the rock cairns were knocked over and it starts on slickrock.  There is quite a bit of single track that is dirt or on and off slickrock enough to find the trail.  We did this as our morning ride then went to the Rockville Bench (a.k.a. Slickrock Swamp).  I wish I had done the Bench first so we could have just camped at the trailhead of the Guacamole Trail.
Would you ride again?
Yes
Any suggestions?
This is a pretty short ride so maybe to a different ride in the morning and then come here for an afternoon or evening ride and to camp away from the Gooseberry crowds.
