Iron Wash  (Twin Knolls to Blue Trail)
Iron Wash is an 18.4 mile loop in the San Rafael Swell. It offers a bit of cruising, some deliciously technical rock singletrack, an ATV-track grind, and some "castle country" vistas. Peak altitude is 6800, bottom 6000, but there's a lot of up-and-down riding. The Red Trail portion of this loop requires good skills and strong legs. There are some short but brutal climbs and very technical descents. This loop is quite strenuous, and we recommend it only for well-conditioned advanced-technical riders.
