Part of the Road Apple Trails System.

This is a fast and mostly downhill trail from Kinsey Ridge into the valley. It has lots of fun whoops and jump options, and not too much sand. The upper section of the trail is also called The Whoops. Turn left at the Y intersection of Bong Rock trail and head south for the lower section. This lower section of Seven Sisters is a wide flowing trail much like The Whoops with small climbs. The trail is very well marked at all major intersection but pretty loose. It’s pretty straightforward, with no major turns. Keep your head up and keep peddling. 

The trail will widen out and is very obvious. After you cross the first wash, you’ll come to the first road intersection. Continue forward and follow the trail markers. Wind down the hill and cross the wash. The trail will be very loose from here on out. Past the second road crossing the trail will join up with an equestrian trail for the last mile. The trail will come to a dead end at the road next to an oil field location about 2.0 miles from the beginning at the Y intersection. -MtbProject Description.

Road Apple Trail is rolling singletrack, which starts on top of Kinsey Ridge. To the southeast, you can see the Navajo Reservoir and beyond, while to the north, you have an amazing view of the La Plata Peaks. This trail is so good, Ned Overend says it is his favorite trail!
