    This is a new track that is easy gravel with a few class B roads all pretty easy. There is one place where you have a bit of sand. By GPS it is about 220 miles so I expect it is road of 240 miles. I road it this week and it took about 9 hours. This track has a bit of everything, but mostly smooth gravel. Very little traffic, just be careful on the blind curves where an oncoming car may be in the middle of the road and moving right along. Plenty of wildlife; deer, saw one elk calf, turkey, wood chucks. [​IMG]

    Thanks for what looks to be a great ride!

    The file you posted would not have worked. Too many tracks points in some track segments (>500 per segment). The tracks would have been truncated when loaded into a GPS (lopped off at 500 points) leaving huge gaps in the path.

    I redid it for you. This one will work.

    Cannonshot, thanks for the correction. It will make it easier for anyone interested in using it.
