    Monte Sano route suggestion?? Should I do something else?

    I have only been over to Monte Sano a couple of times. I plan on hitting it for a couple of days this weekend, as long as the weather holds out.

    Each time I have been over, I rode the same trails. Here is what was recommended to me a few years ago:

    Family Trail to South Cumberland and go left to Mountain Mist and then straight on to Goat Trail. Right on Sinks to Keith's to Logan Point and back to Mountain Mist.

    Back to South Plateau to McKay Hollow. McKay to Natural Well to arrowhead and over to bluffline and tollgate back up the mtn to the road.

    I have done this route twice and like it, but wanted to make sure that I wasn't missing anything fun or if there was anything new.

    Plan to ride a second day, so a route suggestion for that would be appreciated.

    I know that I can get a map at the park, but is there an online resouce?

    On the last segment "tollgate back up to the road", there is a new trail there called "dummy line". It is a funner alternative than tollgate to ride back up.

    After you leave the parking lot area of Land trust, at about 200 yards or so on the left side of tollgate, you will see a trail that branches off. This is dummy line trail.....there is no sign there yet, and it is easy to miss.

    I beleive Oct 1 starts hunting season. Some parts of Flat-Rock cross private property and you need to avoid that during hunting season. After Feb-15, all of Flat-Rock is OK to ride. I'm not sure exactly where the parts that cross private property are.

    I had forgotten the date, that's why the edit.

    Just out of curiosity, how long does it take you to do that route? That is a serious phukkin loop.

    I am not sure. It's a big day, but nothing too terrible if I remember correctly. I don't ride with a computer/gps so I just pedal.

    I'll let you know.

    I will be riding here tomorrow. Does anyone have a link to, or a gpx file to share, that would outline a good route to ride there? I'd be looking to ride the most difficult stuff.
