This is the route BKXC took in the YouTube video "Land of the rising STOKE" during his 50 state shred series. This will require a shuttle if you don't plan on climbing to the top for a second time. This does not include the hike a bike up Wampus Cat and down (a double black). It also doesn't include the second run down which included Feathered Indian, and a shortcut over to Rawhide. There are trails that aren't included in the trail list because the full sections were not ridden (9 Toe, Reclamation Loop, The Bluff), but follow the route guidance and you be on these sections.

This is best ridden over two days, taking the BKXC route the first day and then Rawhide along with the other trails not shown in the video on the second day (Burning Tree, Arrowhead, Cookie, Lower 9 Toe, The Dewey Plunge, Missing Link, Beyond Missing Link).

This is listed as a hard intermediate route, but there are some expert sections. Please be prepared with snacks and water and a good plan.
