    As the title says, that's where I will be this Thanksgiving. Of course, I'm taking my bike and I should be able to ride Wed-Thur-Fri mornings. Probably out at Blue Diamond-Cottonwood.
    Unless someone out there knows some hidden gem...

    Just Blue Diamond? There is SO MUCH MORE OUT THERE!!!

    I will be down river riding Havasu/Kingman on Thurs/Fri/Sat. If you guys want to drive down for the day, I can show you around.

    How about adding Satan's Escalator while you are on that side, too?

    As I said in the original post, I will be in Las Vegas, not 100 miles away in Kingman, AZ.
    My time is limited due to familial constraints so I will be riding the Blue Diamond and Cottonwood areas.
    Hey! Why don't you drive up and ride with me! I'll be in the white van, down by the river...

    Heck, what's 100 miles to drive one way for a killer ride??? ;)

    I too will be with family so I can't get away either. :whistling:

    My suggestion: If you can drive over to Henderson, try the Anthem/Nitro trail system. It's outstanding. :thumbsup:

    If you are staying near Blue Diamond, then consider Southwest Ridge. Another great ride. It connects to Bears Best now.

    Gotta keep it a little tamer. Riding with my kid. He is neck deep in college, work and a girlfriend that can't drive due to eyesight. She also works and goes to school. He is her Uber. His skills have gone away due to this. I chose trails he won't kill himself on. Learned a lesson in Prescott got him in to deep and we dodged a bullet.

    That's what is so cool about Blue Diamond, you can just combine loops to fit your needs. Ledgy, rocky, fast, flowy, long, short...it's up to the rider
    It's such a great system.

    SW Ridge and Anthem/Nitro trails are fairly tame XC with little tech sections mixed in. But the rocks are SHARP!

    Anyway, BD/Cottonwood is a nice scenic loop. :thumbsup:

    I too will be in Vegas for Thanksgiving with my bike! I'm going to take my Dad for a ride around Blue Diamond. He is 71 so it will be tame.

    That's dope @LLPoolJ with my parents getting older I am making sure the time we have together is great too. Don't know how many more years they will still want to bike, ski, fish, ECT. So I am not taking wasting my visits watching tv with them. We have decades to do that still.

    I followed your lead Rossage pulled up at 1pm and did Badger>3mi Smile>Late Night>Mustang Loop. Linked torather 15mi. Great riding, my style short punchy climbs and long flowy dh.

    No ride for me tomorrow. If I don't cook vegetables no one in this family will even think about eating them.

    I’ve been around, just not riding. But I’m feeling a comeback is in my near future. Enjoy the ride out there
