Matson and Greensfelder are good bets.

So I am looking at the middlefork trail for an out and back.. Can anyone tell me how much elevation change there is? Also.. are you able to take the bailout back to D on the map and ride singletrack back to the trail head to A or is there some reason not to? thanks again!

Middlefork is nice and hilly, uphill, downhill and repeat! Usually works out to be about 100 feet of climbing per mile. The route you described is a good one. A lot of people ride out on a part of the trail, loop back on some gravel and take the singletrack back to the trailhead. Here's two different GPS tracks of Middlefork loops- http://connect.garmi...ivity/123580348 and http://connect.garmi...ivity/173162715

Does anyone have a GPS file they could send me of the Berryman Trail Please.. Only ridden it once a few years ago and never knew if I was making a loop or not. Also is the creek / stream water OK to re-fill bottles etc with? thank you!
