Description

This short singletrack connector is called the Tandem Cut-off by locals. It's great for making a short loop from the Lajitas Airport Trailhead that includes the eastern half of The Root Route Trail-South (aka Sport Course) and The Root Route Trail-North (aka Singlespeed Trail). If you had so much fun on the The Root Route Trail-South (aka Sport Course) that you want to do it again you can do a shorter version of Loop 3 and catch most of the best singletrack. It's an excellent short loop to add on to the end of a longer hike or to combine with Loop 2 for quick and fun loop.

This trail was built during the Chihuahuan Desert Challenge days to create a dedicated loop for the tandem class in the cross country race.
