    Searching for the same. Sort of multiple hours/day trip stuff from A to B touring stuff. Just moved here from Europe, but so far only found closed loops.
    Also, any recommendations for night rides during summer weeknights?

    Any input/resources are highly appreciated.

    By law most mountains and trails are closed 'at sunset', that is if you leave your automobile parked over night. If you are looking to ride something for days, check out the Appalachian Trail

    But certain sections especially in New Jersey they frown bikes on so you will need to research local bike laws.

    With few exceptions the entire length of the AT is for foot traffic only. So a bikepack along it would not be a good idea.

    Who the hell would suggest the AT?!

    a) there are NO sections open to bikes, along its entire course.
    b) in most locations it wouldn't appeal to riders.

    Unfortunately because we live on the east coast most of your bikepacking opportunities will be rogue due to camping restrictions. Very few places in the east legally allow overnight primitive camping.

    Multiple options out there, few people have investigated and of those fewer let their secrets out.
    Don't buy upgrades; ride up grades.
