Description

Thompson's recommended direction is counter-clockwise. If completing this with Mouse Branch Loop, stay straight on Thompson when finishing Mouse. To ride Thompson by itself, head out the doubletrack from the parking lot to Murphy Gap, and left at this intersection. Mileage would be about a mile longer than listed if doing Thompson by itself.

Thompson has some ups and downs early in the ride, but generally has little elevation gain until you are a little over 2 miles in when youll begin a climb that gains about 350 ft. in 3 miles. After that, youll have about a mile of descending to finish.
