We’re planning to ride this trail in late July, starting at the southern end.
Are there interesting hikes/rides/attractions near the southern end? We’re considering driving up and seeing what there is to see, then setting out the following day and riding all the way to the state parks.
The alternative is to drive up and set out on the trail on the same day. In the latter case I guess we could camp somewhere along the trail. In either case we plan to go all the way to the northern end of the trail.
