    GPX of BCT from Rock Springs to Bumble Bee ?

    I'm Googlin' and Googlin' and all I come up with is old posts and websites with dead links.

    Does anyone have (or know of a good link to ) a GPX file of the norhtern section of BCT from Rock Springs to Bumble Bee ? Thanks !

    Go to the Arizona Endurance Series website and find it under the BCT section.

    Found this nice ride...

    Found this interesting 40-mile round trip..It actually vistits the town of Bumble Bee... But what I really like about this is if you're completely exhausted, you have an option of taking a more leisurely dirt road back to Rock Springs.

    Yep, that's the old "short course" for the AES ride...Great way to see some good BCT w/o killing yourself with a really long ride. Since the trail crosses over the dirt road 3 times, you have some pretty good bailouts.
    There are tons of options out there for rides that exceed 100 miles... go here--> One Gear Ray and scroll down and on the right you'll see a bunch of my ride gpx's. Just look through the list for the ones with "BCT" in them.

    I rode 90% of that on Monday without a map or GPX and the trail wasn't that hard to follow. Signs were in all the right places or I got lucky.
    If you know how to use them, I recommend you bring a set of garden cutters. Some of the prickly desert plants are growing into the trail rather far. Only found this in 2 or 3 places over 11 miles of trail, but that was enough to prompt me to put a pair in my pack.
