The Blue Diamond Loop is my go-to loop at Cottonwood. It can be ridden in well under an hour, is nearly 10 miles and has diverse terrain with a great hill climb warm up right out of the gate!

 Clockwise was fun! Nothing special on south side, north side was a slightly rocky descent, and north east side was a blast to go down.

True to its name, lots of rocks in the middle of the trail. Still lots of misplaced rocks and even loose sand from a recent flood.
