    all of annadel?

    Has anyone done a ride (or seen a route posted) hitting all the trails in Annadel? I've seem some routes like this optimizing Skeggs and other areas, but interested in trying a similar project in Annadel.

    My searching skills don't seem too sharp today, so references to other threads are most welcome.

    all of annadel?

    It's not everything, but close to it -

    This was from an MTBR New Years Ride.
    Riding everything means doubling back and doing some trails twice. To complicate matters, there is a lot of smaller, unofficial user trails.

    43 miles

    I've done 43 mile routes twice. Just have to get out the map and plan a route. There will be some repeats, e.g. both up and down Lawndale and Schultz. Most mtbr riders seem to skip going up both Richardson and South Burma. But that eliminates a couple miles and one of the best climbs I think.

    This will give you something to work with I think. I believe I saw Mr and Mrs Brewtality during this outing.

    This one gives you pretty much all the Western end of the park.

    Quick comments on these tracks: 1) I can't imagine riding 50 miles in Annadel without hitting the Ridge trail, one of the best in the park. 2) I can't imagine ascending North Burma, a steep techy trail that is fun going down but almost too steep in some spots, unless you are really skilled and really strong.

    I don't think I would have been able to hack it. Props to you for a huge day.

    I love climbing every trail at Annadel. All of them are a great challenge, with just the right amount of tech for me.

    And just for truth and honesty here, I am not saying I clean all of them when climbing.
