Definately get out to the White Tanks...as well as the MTB specific race loops, there are miles of great trails - Mesquite Canyon, Goat Camp, Mule Deer, etc...

Estrella is great too...Check out the race loops.

...and if you snoop around a little you might find FINS (Fantesy Island North)...Good Luck!

Thanks for the 411 guys. I took a look at the link as well as a few Topos finding a few trails now loaded in the GPS (even FINS)

With the terrain, at least via topos, it would seem as if there should / could be more trails. Bringing the rigid bike so not sure if that is best for the terrain or if I'll just take a beating. Regardless a day of riding can't be all that bad.

FINS is great for SS rigid. Multiple trails with a range of difficulty.

You are hardcore to ride Estrella rigid. It's possible, and I've been beaten in races by people on rigids.

If you take out the tech section of White Tanks, it makes for a fast SS course.

You will be fine on a rigid in those areas...IF you are a rigid rider. I ride FINS, Estrella, White Tanks, and all the secret trails around there on rigid SS. It's not that bad, but many will disagree. Bring the rigid. - rhino
