New Revision, added Preview Pics, directions and NAVfile, (updated 9/7/09).

Nice loop! Somewhat technical downhill with great variety. The first half is a wide open sunny fireroad climb. The second half is narrow rocky singletrack with lot of switchbacks twisting through the forest. Plenty of welcome shade and picturesque views.

Wow, trail really changed since I last rode it before the fire. Quite dusty and more technical now.

Lots of fun coming down the singletrack. Long climb but definitely worth it!

1st time @ El Prieto. 1 of 2 laps. Nice day to ride, cool temps in morning. It's a shame what the Station fire did to the mountains and trails. Technically, the trails are closed as a result of the fire. Rock/sand slides have taken out some parts of the singletrack. Lots of work will be needed to get the trails back into shape after the winter rains and expected landslides.

Station fire has devastated the vegetation and caused slides to cover some areas of the singletrack downhill.

Lap 2 of 2. Much faster than the first lap as we now knew the trail a bit. Great ride with Phil. Too bad the Station fire did what it did. Maybe Phil will post some pics of the burned out trails.

Just rode this trail on sept 9, 2009, a few days after the big station fire. Brown mountain in completeley burned and El prieto in 90% burned. It looks like a dessert wasteland with absolutely no vegetation anywhere. The trails are still there and somewhat rideable but with alot of erosion slides covering the trails. Saw alot of dead rabbits.
