    Massanutten Trail loop

    Has anyone on here done the 70 mile loop? The wife and I are looking at doing it this year and I havent been able to find much info about it.

    I've got the GPX file but can't find any info on the best direction to do the loop. CW vs CCW?

    Are there enought streams to filter water?

    We would be looking to start from the Elizabethtown Furnace area and most likely break it up into 2 or 3 days.

    Any info would be greatly apprecited!

    If you're talking about "the ring", I've never done it but it's supposed to be one of the toughest routes around. I think something like 10 people have ever completed it in a day. Check out Jeremiah Bishops "in the wheel house" youtube channel. he did a video on a failed attempt last year.

    Water spots are pretty spread out. Time of the year makes a big difference in both water and conditions. Best direction is a debate I continue to have with myself. As well as what is the best starting point. Go pre-ride some sections so you know what you are in for. I've had 3 failed attempts over the years. Posted some of those thoughts over at this thread: https://forums.mtbr.com/virginia-wv-...il-941124.html
