 It occurs to me that after creating this route I never did report back here. It goes! Actually, the day 2 portion is really some enjoyable gravel grinding. We omitted the Cunningham Creek Falls leg due to time constraints but the rest was done basically as planned. It's too bad that there's no alternative to the highway across the Kingston Penn because the road section felt grueling (big hills on a loaded bike-packing rig). Make sure to detour a few blocks to hit up the Picaroons Brewery in SJ!
