My son wants to take his Boy Scout troop on a bikepacking trip. While he’s an experienced racer the rest of the kids fitness and ability varies from “Okay” to “total butterball”. So I’m looking for a two day trip that is slightly more interesting than the Silver Comet but no where as epic as TransGeorgia.
From West Dam to Mistletoe State Park it’s about 20-30 miles, and mostly flat singletrack. There’s a campground (Petersburg) a few miles from West Dam, then there’s also camping at Mistletoe State Park at the other end. The connection between the Keg Creek trail and Mistletoe involves a bit of gravel road route finding, but I know it can be done.
