    Hoping to find out myself in the next few days. The new MBA magazine says IMBA rates it an epic ride. Looking for more info on it now before I head there.

    I hiked some of this YEARS ago. I mean....15, 17 years ago? I'd like to ride it sometime, my memory indicates that it would be a fun, somewhat challenging ride through beautiful landscape.

    Get am good map and ride as much of it as you can. I try to make it there 2 times per year. I would only avoid it if it's wet. I hear they have built some more single track that is in a different part of the area. Might check with the rangers.

    BSF is a good trail network. Not sure I would call it epic, but what I would consider a good mtb trail system.

    The only downside is that most of the trails are pretty spread out and you will have to drive to them independent or get ready for miles of gravel roads.

    Stop by the Bandy Creek Ranger/Vistor center. The rangers are more than willing to get you on the trails and point you in the right directions.

    The major ones to hit up are:
    -Grand Gap
    -Chestnut Ridge
    -and all the Bandy Creek stuff
