Description

Experience peacefulness and solitude as you ride the BLM's Sunshine Loop through fascinating desert scenery. Interesting dry washes, colorful buttes and abruptly rising escarpments impress mountain bikers all along this half-day trip. The 8.5 mile (13.5 km) loop trail has a More Difficult Rating mostly because of difficult trial surfaces in some stretches.

Flash flooding is possible any time of year, so keep an eye on the weather and watch for rising water in the washes. To avoid conflicts and help ensure continued mountain biking opportunities, please stay on the marked trail and leave all gates as you find them.

Please note, you'll encounter occasional difficult trail surfaces and some portaging may be necessary. The route consists of two lane road, single lane road and 36" trail. It is mostly hard dirt with some stretches of soft sand or rocky trail.
