Pond Gut Entrance

Getaway (orange) -Wow what a great trail!
After riding on Getaway for quite a bit, I mistakenly veered off Getaway and ended back on the old carriage road so I looked for and found the entrance to Outer Gut (blue) and rode the whole thing! Amazing trail - this is a masterpiece! (truth be told... this old man walked a lot of the uphills but I still enjoyed it - you are really deep in the woods here and the vibe is ancient as if the Druids walked here...!)
|There's a long section where you ride on the edge of the marsh . =-|
by this point you are deep in the gut
Outer Gut twists and turns quite a bit so after quite a bit of riding (and shameful hike-a-bike) I stared to get worried that somehow I was lost and the trail wasn't gonna loop back! This really is a long and tough trail. Fortunately, after sticking it out, the trail did loop back as expected and my worries re being lost disappeared... whew...
|you reconnect with the old carriage road and swing by a gate -|
the ancient carriage road continued northward here
I flew back south on the much-easier-to-ride carriage road and then swung off to ride Pirate Creek (yellow). It was much more manageable than Outer Gut but there were still plenty of challenges and a few up and down hilly sections.
Had a bloody wound on both legs from my pedals but what's a decent ride without a little scrape! <wink>
Great trails - great place to ride for sure! Trail Map here >
