  This place is a must ride for anyone within driving distance! Although I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners, with the exception of the No Sweat Loop, intermediate and advanced riders will love it! Packed with switchbacks, nice climbs and sweet descents to match, Flat Rock Ranch is a singletrack lover’s playground…just watch out for the cacti and prickly bushes, of course.
  The Lower Loop puts things into perspective early on by butting you side-by-side with sheer drop-offs as the trail winds around. Stay focused or you might end up in a 5-foot wash-out as one in our group did. Sprained ankles suck for a mtb’r. "Pipeline Hill", with its 1900ft elevation, makes for a great spot to take a break and a few scenic photos overlooking the ranch. "Evilworm" is a twisted little section of downhill that will get the first-time rider nervous by its name alone. Shortly after "Evilworm" is a wicked downhill section that you can gain some nice speed on. Just be careful as the trail is somewhat of a rut and a right pedal too low will catch the side – trust me, I know. Although I must say, that was my best Superman impression to date and the reason I will continue to always wear a helmet.
  For some reason I seem to always ride the Lower Loop, so until I change my ways, you'll have to find out about the Upper Loop on your own.
Note: Lower Loop has changed slightly since this review
