Blue Pots is more technical and the elevation changes are a bit greater than the Guardrail (outer) Loop. This trail is very rooty, rocky, tight, and generally 'raw'. It's a great trail to ride to keep your real bike handling skills up-to-snuff, and it serves as a great contrast to the newer-school machine-built flow trails.

The trail is apparently named for the rusty old blue enamel cooking pots found during trail work.
