    Broken Masa trail in Washington?

    Does anyone know anything about the Broken Mesa trail in Washington, UT? Other trails in Washington (other than Church Rocks/Prospector)?

    Thanks

    I rode it a few years ago on a road trip down there and really enjoyed it. Tough technical climb up the mesa, then a nice mellow climb up Icehouse. Really fast fun return back down Icehouse and a fun technical descent to finish. Here's a few pics I found from the ride:

    If you enjoy loose, rocky trails, then Broken Mesa is for you. It's a fun ride, but there are better trails in the area. Check out the one & only trail guide for all of Utah - www.utahmountainbiking.com

    Don't ride it after any rain. Super tacky nasty mud. The descent is ok, pretty fun, but a bit odd. It is very open, filled with square edged rocks. The scenery is not that great, and the most fun/hairiest part of the downhill is over very quickly at the end, leaving you with kind of a slog of a ride back to the road along a dirt access road. Run big tires, or higher pressure, as a group of 11, we had about 6 pinch flats. Pretty bad.

    Yeah it is a harsh trail. Sharp and rough. Be prepared. I think the view of the valley is sweet. the last descent is super fun but i wish it was longer since it is the most technical part of the trail.
