Trail 3 Mile Smile
We rode up Cottonwood Pass Road and down 3 Mile Smile. Next time I would probably ride up 3MS and do this as out and back. Been riding this trail since 2003 and for some reason I keep coming back. Oh, I know. It's that good. When you get to the end, ride up Badger Pass and down Techno for ~9 miles of awesome desert singletrack.

A gradual climb back from the other uninteresting portion of trail to the entrance of 3-mile smile. It makes for a good fitness loop of that’s what your looking for.

Whatever the name of this trail.. it’s got a lot going for it. Fairly manageable to ride up and a flat joy to descend.

Well, finally rode it and it’s not my tea. Seriously, Flow Job has a better view with a little bit more challenge (if not the same); Dead Horse → 3 Miles Smile loop has much more fun and requires less energy. So why landmine loop?

From a beginners perspective, this is a great way to build up climbing endurance. The trail is long but nice and easy. Ride back down if you're not ready for the switchbacks, 3 mile smile, and white rhino.

Totally doable to clean this on the uphill for intermediate riders. Newer riders may want to push a couple sections but overall it's not bad at all thanks to many switchbacks. Typically you will have the steeper sections around the corners and then it levels out until you get to the next turn.

Horrible gravel grind. The only way you will ever get me to ride this trail again is on a busy weekend to not cause problems to downhill riders. Just ride up WR and 3MS. That route is faster, way more enjoyable a climb, and only has a few steep sections that most intermediate riders can clean.

In my opinion ( I like high speed flowy downhills with climbing nearly a means to an end) at about the 1/3 mark, follow sign to cactus slalom. Then at a main intersection take little daytona which is part of the late night loop. This will dump u out at another intersection where u can rejoin landmine loop and ride back to Blue diamond. I’ve passed some people doing this trail in the opposite direction and I can’t figure it out

In my opinion ( I like high speed flowy downhills with climbing nearly a means to an end) at about the 1/3 mark, follow sign to cactus slalom. Then at a main intersection take little daytona which is part of the late night loop. This will dump u out at another intersection where u can rejoin landmine loop and ride back to Blue diamond. I’ve passed some people doing this trail in the opposite direction and I can’t figure it out

Seems like it’s loose and cobbly either direction. Some fun flowu parts and then some random, massive obstacles that are easily black diamond to clear. Easy enough to walk but they seem out of place.
