This is the legend. The big epic loop all the way up Stone Free and down Big Ed. Be sure to budget enough time for this big ride, most riders will require several hours to finish.

This is the easier of the Big Ed options, but is still an advanced route and will present a big challenge for most riders.

Look forward to 2016 when Pali Gap will connect Stone Free Again to Tombstone with one long continuous singletrack, eliminating the need to go on any roads!
