I'm using Gaia, seems to be the most capable and easy to share with their free version. But I try some new ones I find every now and then when going on trails already mapped. I don't think we have a mapped trail for that trek. A lot of sxs run it so I'm sure its out there somewhere. please let us know if you find it.  We have been "electronic" scouting out that ride and looking forward to do a weekend trip on that trail with a limited number of spots or just for members sometime in the Fall possible?  Either way, our biggest concern is some tight spots from what I hear. Need to get back in the loop on whats happening with that lol.

Totally understand haha... I had this sent to me the other day, now I do know the Fayette / Nicholas side of this trail well ( tunnels ) but I thought for a long time that trail was barricaded ... at least it was last time I was on it maybe 7-8 years ago... either way, here is what I was sent, but could not transfer it into my app for some reason.

Might be because itís an embedded link maybe? I have no clue. When I clicked on that link, I had to click on the map name, log in and then had the drop down download option to do GPX or KML files (either should work). Then I opened them up and chose to open them with GAIA app, but you can copy and paste directly into app after that I think.

Try this link, this is directly from my GAIA app...copy and pasted:

We should get a scouting trip going with a few of us. I have some places Iíve always wanted to see where they led/ find out if they are private or public.

I know I would be good with that, and know at least two others that will.
