This is the main access trail to the rest of Blue Diamond/Cottonwood. It's a pretty decent climb and a fun and challenging downhill when you're headed back in. Don't forget to look up and look around.. you can get some great views of the red hills of the canyon. This trail is mainly dirt and rock but it can get technical at times. You can split off this trail at any time to find some more fun dirt or use it to do laps around the mountain

      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.

       I got lost I went straight on the south corner, I came out on lawnmower and inner loop. I will try it next week again.

       I finally ride this trail. If you start on the south side it turns into downhill on the end.

       Pay attention when you reach the big tree. The sign that marks the trail is very small and easy to miss. I would have missed it, if I didn't stop at the tree.

       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.

       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

       Any recommendations on where to park? That town doesn't seem to be very friendly to visitors given their 'no recreation area' signs? Always worried they'll slash my tires lol.

       I've never had a problem parking around the park or the bike shop.

       Not the funnest trail. Lots of flat pedaling. I guess it’s a good trail if you want something for fitness

       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?
