    Just how long is the Ft Yargo Loop?

    I ride Ft Yargo about once a week. I always ride the counterclockwise direction (Saturdays) and always ride Monster Mile and 3 Step loops.

    Sometimes I do one lap and sometimes I do two.

    The trail markers list this trail at a little over 12 miles. The map shows it at 12 miles. But Strava shows it at 10.8 miles.

    Unless I ride two laps...then it shows a total distance of 21.1 miles or 10.55 miles.

    There haven't been any major re routes other than a small change where monster mile links back up to the main trail.

    What's the true lap distance? It sure feels longer than 10.5 miles.
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.

    I haven't ridden Yargo in a while but I remember it being about 12.5 miles. I don't use Strava much either but every time I do the distances come out shorter than my cycle computer.

    I've found that my garmin usually shows about 10% less distance than what I really rode on trails like Ft Yargo. Sometimes worse on tighter trails.

    Just how long is the Ft Yargo Loop?

    Frustrating! Today I rode all 5 loops at Chicopee and Strava only had me at 15.7 Miles. That's got to be at least 17!
