    Blue Diamond Routes

    I'm going to brave the heat today after work and ride cottonwood. I usually start at the lower dirt pull off a few miles past the gas station but today I wanted to start and end the ride in Blue Diamond. What are some of your favorite routes out of BD? Right now the plan is to ride clockwise out of town and evenually come back via landmine loop. Any thought? Ive never done Daves Driveway (heard that is a fun one) and Im not sure where it is either.....thanks

    i am a big fan of taking a route up past the late night parking lot and doing viagra & daytona, and then continuing the land mine loop back into blue diamond. it's about 15 miles if i remember correctly

    If you follow the plan above, just turn right on Landmine at the big Yucca rather than go straight, then turn left in 20 yards or so and another left in another 20 yards to get to Daves Driveway.

    The big Yucca also has a map on a post near it. It is by far the biggest Yucca around. Daves Driveway ends up back on Landmine; its more of a detour than a driveway. There is a fun trail off the driveway to the right around 1/2 mile to 3/4 of a mile in that also goes back to Landmine. I don't know the name of that, but it is worthy.

    Ohhhh you lucky dog!

    We are doing The Barn Burner race in Flag next weekend, I gotta find some higher training ground between now and then. I was thinking of sneaking up to Mt. Charlie this weekend.......

    Have a great time up there and please give us a RR when you're done.
