    I know, I know..... it's shameful, but I've yet to hit Maston (Gasp!)

    In winter, I usually ride Horse Ridge, or more occasionally, I road bike. But I really want to hit Maston.

    My question is this: How to proceed without a GPS unit? I have this excellent map, but I truly don't want the hassle of feeling "lost". That sucks.

    So, is it best to just "stay right" at every trail intersection (like "staying left" works well on Peterson Ridge)?

    Any helpful hints on a GPS-less route? I suppose I could just whip out this map at every intersection.

    Thanks in advance.

    That is a good map.

    Don't sweat the GPS. My advice is to pack the ten essentials, go out there with no plan, explore, take chances and have an adventure. You're more alive when you take risks.

    Getting out of your box in the Maston area isn't really getting out of the box at all, but you can experience that "wow, I'm out of my box" feeling out there easier than in some other places.

    enjoy.

    Im thinking of hitting Maston this weekend. The map states that the outer loop is 11 miles and the inner loops are 10. Does that mean that all the inner loops together equal 10? I a lookin for more than 5 but less than 10. That is all the dog can take for now.

    The shortest loop is about 10 miles.....mostly flat

    You can squeeze 19 miles out of it with creativity.
