Thanks Jennifer. I have ridden that trail three times, covering part of it with a kid in tow. It is definitely one of my favorite rides anywhere and one of the first places I recommend to other cyclists. In fact, if left to my own devices it is near the top of the list. Not #1 only because I would like to try somewhere new! Still, if someone can suggest how to make that part of a loop I would be all over it!
Well darn! I was hoping to have the winning suggestion. =) Have you thought about heading west to Idaho? How about Craters of the Moon National Monument? or further south to Bear Lake? I don't have specific suggestions about those areas but know there were several cyclists passing through here last summer headed that way.
