Just finished this thread, and psyched to ride the BRT. pm'ed you for the files. Now, just have to buy a GPS and get my brother to come down from MA. What would access on this route be in late March?

Thank you for all your work EC

Files received! Thanks a lot! Can't wait to explore some of this trail, just need to find a worthy bike this spring.

(I actually received the files quite a while ago, but lost the email in a barrage of spam. Here I've been still waiting for them for weeks when they were in my inbox the whole time.)

Im going to find out, Ill be leaving from Nashville, and picking up the trail in Jellico on the 27th, and Riding all of T1 and some of T2 that day, if all goes to plan. and then the remainder of T2 and then either continuing north, or picking up the BRT and continuing north on that. What part of the Trail would you be riding?

I would be leaving from Front Royal (northernmost point) and heading south for a couple days then probably taking the BRP/Skyline back home.

Thank you for all your work EC
Should be ok.. a few roads might not be open until 4/1. Consult the MVUM which has all the opening and closing dates of the USFS roads.

Got the files! Thanks a lot. I'll be spending 5 days with my 17 year old son the last week of March (2 weeks from today).

Let me know if there are any inmates willing to talk me through downloading the file on my garmin Oregon.

Thanks again to Error cooled.

Tom

We are hauling out and riding this in September. Anyone know a good place to leave the trucks, preferably on the southwestern part near I 77 or I 64?

The route is to be constructed so that it exclusively uses publicly accessible roads and trails so that the rider can travel without worry of gated roads or private property.
Received my map yesterday,looks to be a whiz bang tour returning from the 2013 BMW RA rally at the Biltmore.

Inspired me to work up something similar for Pennsylvania,stay tuned.

Got the file. Thank you for your hard work! Looking forward to checking out some of the trails this Summer.

error cooled... If you're ever in my neck of the woods I'd be happy to buy you a beer for putting this route together and sharing it for free.

Thanks! Clint
