It's been done before in various incarnations, and the idea of a Trans-Michaux ride continues to pique interest in the local factions. This kind of ride comes with many compromises and it seems that knowledge can be your enemy.

Brett's to Old Forge, 36 miles, 7 hours, with a lot of time not moving. The pic below shows one reason for downtime at our drop stop

enjoying some more non-moving time here after fixing a tire slice from possible trail sabotage?

when we hit the truck for the commute back north, we all felt a bit of unexplained underwhelming blah. None seemed sure why though. How can 7 hours in Michaux not be good?
Why do these point-to-points feel so different from loops?

and back as a Wild teamy

a southern gas kickin'

Holy Hell!
how can such a seemingly flat line be so grueling?
a Weds night killer on what was thought as a baby loop
I guess there aren't any baby trails in this vicinity
any mile of this stuff that gets added to the race needs to take 5 miles off somewhere else
