Overview

Big Mesa is a logical yet rewarding addition to both Wipe-Out Hill and Bartlett Flat trails. These three trails challenge our vehicles while rewarding our souls with breathtaking views of 7-mile Point. Big Mesa has one 4x4 challenge that continues the feel of the other trails that traverse below the cliffs. Once you climb out of the wash, you will see mountain bikers cruising across bridges, traversing below the overhangs of the hidden natural arches, while you relax along this more leisurely section of trail.
