Bluffs Loop is a perfect blue progression trail. Ride it counter clockwise to slowly test your ability level after climbing up Miral Heights. If confident at the Sunnigdale junction complete the loop by riding back down the west side (river side) of Bluffs Loop for a super fun, slightly techie, blue rock ride. Climb back up to the Sunningdale junction and head down for a splendid descent with only a few tight corners while enjoying some stunning visual side hilling. The finale is rewarded with easy sinuous flow. Ride Bluffs Loop clockwise as a warm up to the black diamond Rusty Chainsaw. Take a dip at Gyro Park in the Columbia River for a refreshing cool down.
