Inner Loop (Easy) Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Inner Loop is a great trail that gives you a taste of everything Cottonwood has to offer. Before the ride is over, you’ll find you’ve been on just about every trail in the Cottonwood Valley. This trail is called the Inner Loop because it makes its way around Cottonwood Valley, for the most part staying in the valley and away from the hills, except, of course, when the trail meets up with the Landmine Loop. However, instead of making the many steep climbs associated with the Landmine Loop, you get to ride down those same trails. From the parking lot, pull out onto Castalia Street and turn left, heading to Cottonwood Drive."
--Paul W. Papa, Best Bike Rides Las Vegas (Falcon Guides).
"Inner Loop is actually supposed to be ridden through Rubber Ducky, also known as Ducky. This route adds more distance to the ride and is a little more difficult than the South Cut route. Rubber Ducky is a very popular trail in Cottonwood mainly because there is a large Joshua tree toward the end of the trail, just off to the side, from which bikers like to hang rubber ducks of all types and sizes."
--Paul W. Papa , Mountain Biking Las Vegas and Southern Nevada (Falcon Guides).
"The Inner Loop is a great trail that gives you a taste of everything Cottonwood has to offer. If you want to get to know the Cottonwood area, this is the trail for you. Not only will you have a fun ride, you’ll get to see a large portion of the valley, and much of the Cottonwood trail system.From the parking lot, pull out onto Castalia Street and turn left heading to Cottonwood Drive. Turn left again and follow Cottonwood. A right turn on Cerrito Street will lead you to the trailhead at the top of the hill. Cerrito Street is a bit of a climb and you’ll know you’ve found the trailhead when asphalt turns to dirt."
