Several of the previous routes have relied on use of the Mid-State Trail or other hiking-only trail route options. This time around we have two options that are suitable for a mountain bike, depending on how much climbing or how many rock gardens you care to navigate. The longer, Thickhead Mountain route below might be more than you want to bite off for a hike or run but you can also shorten it a bit on foot by utilizing the Standing Stone Trail (shown in yellow on the map.
Take note, we're likely to experience some rain over the next few days and both Long Mountain (descent portion) on the Thickhead Loop and Sassafras on the Bigelow Loop tend to hold water for quite some time and the trails can be easily damaged with high traffic.
