This trail starts off with driving UP a wash. It's boulders and rocks all the way up to the dam. Once at the dam, you'll climb the hill to see some abandoned mines. For some reason, the path is blocked by gigantic rocks so you'll have to climb the side of the mountain a bit to get around. It's about a 20 degree incline so be careful. On your way down the trail, you can choose to attempt the wash the rest of the way, or ride topside on a dirt road. There's two hills to climb that are pretty gnarly. Finish off with a bit more wash and you're done!

There are two optional side treks you can take on this trail. They both dead end up in the hills but they are a bit scenic.
