Primarily a horse and hiking trail. However the North and North East sections of the trail are used as exits back to the Station Flats parking area from the Race of Spades and Ridgeback trails.
The loop is also a shorter option without too much challenging climbing.

Access Info

For a clockwise loop, take the Elbow Valley Trail west from Station Flats. The turnoff onto Diamond T is ~1km away from the trailhead. Anti-clockwise, take Tom Snow east from Station Flats and follow it until the junction with Diamond T. Turn left to follow Diamond T.

      Large tree down across trail, blocking trail at pin drop. Muddy puddles in the usual spots.

      Rode past lone Grizzly coming into Diamond T Loop from RoS. Non-aggressive, but crapped my shorts none the less! No photo, sorry.

       Easy hike and short loop, Close to Calgary (1 hour drive), good for families and beginners, there is a long hill if you go clockwise. There isn't any awesome view! just trees.

       If biking, best to go left at trailhead and push your bike up a steep hill but enjoy the rest of the trail down. But if you want to climb and climb some more with a somewhat messy steep horse trail at the end, then go right at trailhead. Mud holes bog you down at the low points, just where you want to get a head of steam up for the next hill, you have to slow down/stop at the mud holes. This seems to be more of a horse trail, path doesnt appear to be used much by bikes.

       This is very much a horse trail, and not really recommended for any other users unless you need to check it off a list or something.

       Not great for beginner bikers. Muddy spots and lots of spots require you to get off your bike and push it uphill.
