The Epic route is marked with green stickers on the trail markers. I would recommend following that out and back. The trails are very well marked and the maps are very detailed. For a detailed trail map go to OMBA.org .

There are a few water stops along the way. But be prepared to ride 20+ miles between water supplies. Santos, Landbridge, and Ross Prairie Trailheads are about the only places to get water along the way. There are campgrounds at Santos and Ross Prairie trailheads.
