This is the old AES route. From Rock Springs take the paved frontage road and link up with Maggie Mine Rd. This turns to dirt about 5 miles from the start. Stay on this road until the top of Antelope Creek, then ride the BCT all the way back to Rock Springs. It's a 21 mile 'warm-up', then 29 miles of BCT goodness. Don't forget to stop for pie in Rock Springs!!
