Description

I recommend parking at McGhies Bike Outpost and riding to the trailhead through the quiet, shady streets of Blue Diamond.

The trail starts with a couple swooping drainages, then a heart pumping climb that offers a great warm-up for the day. There is a lot of fun to be had here with a few nice rocky drops and climbs, smooth & loose singletrack, rock gardens and fast flowing hard pack. It then ends coming back into the town of Blue Diamond from the north.

I often meet folks out riding here that are looking for "THE" way on the map they downloaded or purchased. None of the trails are marked with signs and maps can be hard to pinpoint exact trail locations... The best advice is to use your map as a general guide - getting to know these trails takes a little time. As with all the trails in this area, this one is seldom ridden from start to finish by itself.

Riders will typically connect any combination of trails on any given day to patch together their ride. I seldom ride the Landmine Loop as shown here as I prefer to add more mileage and make a larger loop by combining the South Cut or Inner Loop and other trails. You just need to get out and ride for yourself and find YOUR favorite configuration of trails.
