Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
This area is a maze of single track and ATV trails with a large relatively featureless slickrock area.  There are sections of deep sand in the washes, but many were rideable.  This could probably change with any heavy rain.  The climb up to Cedar Mt in the counter clockwise direction was all very rideable.  It is steep in sections, but firm for the most part.  The trail down Garden Mesa through Ann's Arroyo and Howe's Hairpin were also rideable going down, but would have been tough going up through the sand.  There are great views and miles of very good single track. 
Would you ride again?
Yes, I would like to try the last part of the Sovereign Trail that goes down Richards Ridge.
Any suggestions?
Road to the outer trail head is suggested for 4wd only.  There is plenty of parking at both the 2wd area (shown above) and the 4wd area part of the way out the road.  There were people camping at both spot however better spots were found back near the 4wd trail head.
