“This route combines a full loop on Bedford Reservation, East Rim - Phase 1, and East Rim - Phase 2 via Bike & Hike.”— John Coppedge
Bedford Reservation (primarily singletrack, 11.5 mi) *** Directional
East Rim - Phase 1 (singletrack, 2.2 mi) *** Directional by day
East Rim - Phase 2 (singletrack, 4.4 mi) *** Directional by day
Bike & Hike Trail - (shared use paved, 18.3 mi)
East Rim trails are directional and direction changes daily. Follow the trailhead markers, they are very clearly labeled.
Bedford is also directional but is the same direction every day. This trail is a bit trickier to follow but does have signage at each trail entrance (it connects in multiple singletrack segments via paved paths).
The Bike & Hike Trail is shared use and can get busy on weekends, but is generally pretty manageable. There are quite a few road crossings, but no exposure to road traffic beyond that.
Ride East Rim - Phase 1 and East Rim - Phase 2, then head back on the Bike & Hike Trail, reversing your initial route out. Connect back up to the Bedford Reservation trail and complete the rest of the loop, which will end back at the Egbert parking lot.
