Hymasa Trail
The Hymasa Trail is a two-way, 3.2-mile trail in the Amasa Back riding area. The singletrack begins where the Amasa Back trail leaves Kane Springs Canyon Road and extends up to the saddle on the mesa. It's upper-intermediate in technical requirement and moderately strenuous. The ride below is 9.2 miles with 1600 vertical feet of climbing, and is considered expert-level technical. Intermediate riders should descend via Hymasa, riding it as an out-and-back.
