Trail Description: We will take a sandy wash from the meet spot to the start of the Devils Loop trail. The devils loop is a moderate trail located in the Stoddard Valley OHV area. This is the trail that the club leads at HDR. The trail has lots of rocks of all sizes and shapes. We start the trail at the gate keeper. The largest obstacle on this trail. Next is a rocky hill climb then back down through a rocky canyon. A few more rocky obstacles takes us to another rocky hill climb. At this point we will loop back through the same rocky canyons and obstacles. Before getting back to the gate keeper we will head east through a narrow wash with a few rocks along the way. We finish the rocky sections of the run with a long rocky canyon with a few drop offs and several big rocks. The return trip to the Lenwood rd. meet spot is via the sandy wash. There are bypasses for all but one of the rocky obstacles.
