Trail shared by David Holshouser

A long(ish) loop of (almost) all of the blue and green trails at Curt Gowdy.

Overview

This ride covers as many of the blue and green trails as possible in a single route. I had to include a few short sections of black trails to connect everything, but its intent is to be as much of Curt Gowdy as possible and as accessible to as many people as possible.

Need to Know

I tried the Curt Gowdy State Park - IMBA Epic but it included too many black and double black trails for my friends to enjoy. So I made this as a ride accessible to intermediate riders.

Description

Start at the lowest elevation point and get the climbing out of the way while your legs are fresh.

Take a tour of the Shoreline and campground area on the way up to the Stone Temple Circuit. Round out the northern section with bits of Crow Creek Trail, Albert's Alley, and Mo' Rocka. Then head back south on Granite Ridge and Middle Kingdom to end a nice 20-mile day on Crystal Ridge.
