This route combines the two best trails on the Southside, Munson and Twilight. This is referred to as the outer loop as it leaves off some of the interior portions of both trails. And oh yeah, we made sure to add Luge into the mix...great little trail!

Munson--This is where it all began in Tallahassee. The classic 7.5 mile loop runs counter-clockwise, with a divider trail, the Tall Pine Shortcut, bisecting the loop to offer a bit more or less depending on what you need. Take the Luge for an alternate route on your second lap for a variation. Circa 2010 the trail was reinforced with clay and limestone in places to prevent eroding. This significantly increased the average pace attainable through the winding pines. As we locals say, if Munson is too easy, pedal faster.

Twilight--A concession to the old-school riders who favor a more natural surface, this additional 14 miles of single-track is a high-speed magic carpet ride after a rain, or a sandy wander through the twilight zone depending on conditions. Ignore the sounds from the gun range, it is well-bunkered and perfectly safe.
