    Noble / BLT Help

    Im looking for a new route in the Noble area, Im not the best climber so id like to start from the BLT lower trail head and connect to Noble Canyon.

    What is the best way to make a loop back to BLT with more DH then climbing?

    Im looking for about 12 miles and no shuttle.

    if you guys got any maps that would be awesome!

    What goes down must go up. Good luck finding a loop with more downhill than climbing.

    Here's a link to a good map of the area.

    http://www.lmva.org/trails/map.htm

    You could ride Penny Pines>>Pioneer Mail to Pine Mountain trail>>Indian Creek>>Noble Canyon>>Big Laguna Trail>>Sunrise highway>>Penny Pines. Once you bottom out at the bottom of Indian Creek, it's all uphill to Big Laguna Trail (probably about a 500 vertical foot climb). I would consider this a pretty good tour of the area without having to climb all the way up from the bottom of Noble.

    I think the route I described is about 15 miles.

    Here's a good map from the SDMBA web site, they also have a decent description of riding Noble that can help you figure stuff out if you do the route suggested in the previous posts.

    Well the difference is that people riding bikes don't vote. So, they're a menace that must be treated accordingly. Get used to it, ya bikie scum.

    I have been looking for most of my life for the legendary all downhill Moebius trail loop -- I heard some MTB'er named Escher may have found it, but isn't telling.
