    Heartbreak ride 8-16-13

    Hey folks,

    Im looking to ride Heartbreak on Friday morning sometime. Never done it and would like a guide if anyone is up for it. I ride at a moderate pace. Im cool with either CC or the Toll road. Thanks.

    If it's dry, HBR is in great shape after the work that Todd and his crew did before ORAMM. They cut out all the down trees and cut back the laurel that was almost completely blocking the trail in spots. But that race cured me of wanting to ride to the top of HBR for a while. It's a 3 hour climb for a 1 hour downhill. At least for me. Have fun!

    Thanks. Since its cut back are the intersections and turns easy to see? Trying not to get lost

    There is really only one intersection - with Star Gap about 2/3 of the way down. If you go right you end up at the railroad tracks. Cross the tracks and you will come out near where Mill Creek Rd. intersects the paved road about 3 miles up from the Kitsuma lot. If you go left, you will go down Star Gap and end up on Jarrett Creek Rd. You will ride about 5 miles on Jarrett Cr. to get back to Curtis Creek Rd. IMHO, it's more fun to turn right and go down lower HBR. It all depends on where you park and how far you want to ride.

    What is the distance of HBR from the BRP to the intersection with Star Gap?

    Thanks
