Rider questions

Q: Is it 40 miles or 21?
A: The outer loop is 22 miles, but there is more (about 36 total) in the system and more is planned. Keep in mind though that this is directly connected, mostly by singletrack, to blowing springs which has another 7 miles or so, and slaughter pen which has about 15 miles.
