Ride Information - Trout
Trout (Metric Century - 66 miles)
NEW AND IMPROVED BASED UPON RIDER FEEDBACK. Be warned, this is not your average metric century ride. With over 5800 feet of climbing squeezed into 66 miles, this will be a personal challenge for any rider. The Trout now follows the Hawk (century) and the Panther (40 mile) for the first 20 miles, which consists of scenic rolling farmland, a series of climbs through beautiful Panther Creek out to Fines Creek. Trout riders climb up to White Oak and ride east along the ridge enjoying excellent views. A challenging climb to the top of Rabbit Skin will be the peak of this ride. Riders follow Panther Creek again out to Fines Creek completing "the loop". A long climb up Rush Fork, with an exhilarating descent into the Crabtree area is up next. On the eastern end of the route, a "lollipop" loop on Thickety and Incinerator roads along the Pigeon River is also a new addition to the ride. Intermediate to advanced riders only.
