This will be one way, continuous endurance pace, limited stops, no tweeting, etc:

email me if you want the route.

nakedindian@singletracksamurai.com

Scott your already getting an email.

I got the entire CFiTT done, but I am still working out some bugs.

So I chopped off Santos Main to Croom and made a file for that.

Here is the directions from Landbridge Trailhead:

Take Mellow yellow to Landbridge

Take Landbridge limestone to Nayls Blue on right.

Take Nayl's blue right to 484, cross 484, go yellow to Blue earn an burn.

Take Earn and burn to T then left to ross prairie single.

Take Ross prairie single to parking lot for ross prairie trail, to sr 200 go right.

Enter into the limestone continue on left after about a mile

Limestone stay left till you get to the main horse lot

horse lot service road go left to you get into haltapa

Follow GPX file or make your own maps from this point.

there are two fence crossings.  One is very friendly the other one is barbed wire.  Nothing illegal, just the park owners never expected us to fully utilize there land in this manner.

Trust the gpx file.

once you get to nobleton road off the withlacoochee go right.

Take the 12 mile bail out to blue go right, then yellow at some point do the sugarhill mountain loop.

follow the gpx or study it well.


good luck!

Possibly

Start time?
How do we get back to the car at landbridge?

I may have a second rider as well, similar skill level.

Still working on logistics. Looks like my gps can not get a babysitter so that will make nav all the more fun.

mmmm.... i think i could ride this route with my eyes closed now. i think it may be closer to 80 miles - i'm sure someone will be running a cyclometer.
