The loop is a the mid-length marked section of trail at Awaba. It turns back toward the starting carpark before the Camelbak Climb. Slightly easier then the Red Loop because of this, the Blue Loop is a lot of fun and easily repeated.

The loop is well marked with blue arrows at all the major junctions. If following be sure to check the direction of the arrow as you approach each sign as its easy to miss your turn.
