One suggestion though. I don't think the 16.2 miles listed in the trail guide is accurate. Unless my computer is way off - which I don't think it is, I think all 4 loops end up totaling more than 17 miles. Normally, a discrepancy like this wouldn't matter much, but there are some strangely numbered signs as well that caused us some confusion. Near the end of our ride, after my computer had rolled past 16.2 miles and we were back on the final part of the A loop, we saw some yellow numbers counting down from 8 to 1. It seemed about right to be counting down to the trail head, but then after the 1, new green signs started counting down from 50. What the heck? After 48, we became convinced that we must have missed a turn and doubled back. Of course it turns out that we were almost back in the first place. Anyway, perhaps a double check on the mileage and/or a reassuring sign that you are indeed almost back to the trail head when the green 50 sign appears would be in order. Anyone else get confused by this the first time they rode there? Maybe it's just me.
Anyway, fantastic trail. Many thanks to those of you who work so hard to make it so awesome. I'll be back.
