Route

The first third of the attached Strava ride is basically the route will follow. For those familiar with Ewing the start will be up the gravel road into the soapbox parking lot, then down the middle flow line into the woods across from the parking lot, here we'll take one of the down trails out into the grass, past the playground, over the deceptively narrow bridge and onto Captains Trail. At the end of Captains you cross the bottom of the soapbox course and onto Trail A, parallel the disc golf course and head up to the top kiosk. It will be Trails 4 > 3 > 2 > 1 so that we're not crossing the streams! As you blast down the boardwalks of Trail 1 you'll hang a hard left to the bridge that leads into Advanced. Over the log over and if you want hit the skinny as you race back up to the parking lot to start your next lap.
