Trail shared by Kalem Lenard

A super fun, rolling trail that is mostly only moderately challenging.

Description

Starting at the end of BLM Road #5941B, this section of Anticline Trail takes off on your right. You'll quickly find yourself winding through rock outcrops. As this trail ages I could see the rating getting bumped up to a 5 star. You'll get dumped out onto a two-track road, follow this left and after only a short distance you'll see it pick back up again on your right. Keep cruising through the pinyon/juniper trees until you tie in with Tectonic Shift.

After crossing BLM Road #5941B, Anticline Trail is a great rolling singletrack. There are some steep portions, but overall it's nothing too challenging. Use this trail to avoid the old 2-track road.

Anticline Trail ends a little ways up Unconformity Trail and provides access to the bottom of Fire Canyon Trail. Use this part of the trail to add diversity to loops and connect over to BLM Road #5941B and the continuation of Anticline Trail.
