This rout is 95% single track, it is relentless. To start ride the road to the other entrance where Bo’s Run starts. Then to Breken Way and then that puts you back on Bo’s Run. There are two major bridges on Bo’s both are easy to get on and off of. That takes you to long way home. Follow long way completely around till Uncle Buzz take left and another left on grassy road. Then 50 yards take right to Nine to Five , a bit of a down hill to shore trail. There are a few rock bridges that are pretty challenging. Along the lake where Dumbos hits is a great spot for a break by Ricks Tree. Then proceed on the shore trail to Wild Kingdom to 100 acers go completely around 100 acers to where you started. Take left then right onto Ladies First climb to Dumbo’s Delima and take a left. This is the a down hil section with Volkswagen Rock in the middle continue down onto Dumbos Solution, a very challenging trail to Grassy road take a right go up 50 yards take a left on North Trail very challenging and ending on a double diamond back to start. Have Fun
