I have ridden in about half of the states, and if I had to pick a favorite trail in the United States, this would be it. It has a little bit of everything. This was Bike Magazine's 2008 North America Trail of the year. It was truly a blessing from Jesus Christ to have the opportunity to ride this trail when I did in 2013. The colors of fall were vibrant. I did not get rained out. I had a mechanical on the first day, so I was only able to ride about half of the trail, but on the second day I got to ride the full 26 miles. It was fantastic!
