Croom Help!
« on: July 08, 2010, 05:35:19 PM »
Have rode croom a few times lately and have some rookie questions.  Where is drunken monkey?--Started the blue loop(counter clockwise) from parking#1 and pulled off the trail at the intersection of FR2 and FR7. Then went south on 7 and got back on blue just before the powerlines to finish the loop and found Drunken Monkey but somehow ended up riding clockwise (somewhere around FR9) the same trail that was ridden earlier. 

Went back eager to find Drunken Monkey, this time parking at #3.  Took the red connect from yellow to blue at FR4 and headed counter cw and went all the way to PA#1 and never came across DM.  Ended up riding blue south of Croom RD clockwise from #1 and had alot of fun.

Also, what are to green circles on the trees?

Thanks in Advance

Lets see if i can help. The green circles are from the motorcycle races in the past.  Monkey is i want to say 1 mile away from 8 mile bailout.

Its easier to get to it via parking lot 1.


later,

If you drive up Nobleton Road, toward the town of Nobleton, about a half mile before you get to the where the limerock road ends and the pavement starts---on the west side of the road you will see a little grass area where people park. If you park there that is the 12 mile bailout. You can ride in there and follow it through the pits area and over to drunken monkey. It's the best section to ride.  That is about 6 miles one way--then you can loop back through again or cut out at the 8 mile and ride the road or paved trail back.
