I've been out to Croom a few times now and have completed the blue loop my past 3 times. I'm really starting to dig this trail. I know the sand gets a little rough at times, but I'm out there to work on my endurance and the sand definitely gets that done! The problem that I'm having is that I always start from parking area #1 and head north, taking the loop counter clockwise and can't ever seem to find the exit off the trail to get back to the parking area. Instead I end up back on the trail and have been getting off about a half a mile past the "2" that's marked onto the dirt road, then head south to the parking area. Don't get me wrong, the extra mileage is great, but it's so frustraighting that I can't seem to find out where I'm missing the exit
You have to cross croom road to ride the full blue experience.
Don't think he's lookin for a short cut, I guess he is missing the red connector as he crosses back over croom. Continue east on red till you will once again cross croom road for your final bit of trail to #1
I've circled in pink where I can't find the way back to the parking area. It's like I can't find the right turn that takes me back. Instead, I'm going left back onto the loop.
Sounds like you are missing that last right that takes you across croom road and back to #1. Maybe ride up to that exit on the North side of croom road to familiarize yourself with what it looks like.
