RHR is better than ever with a bunch of new bridges, reroutes and other improvements. There are four water stations along the big loop (16mi) and bail-offs to make shorter loops at 6, 9, 10, and 12 miles each.

Some old trails have been reestablished (Lumberjack and Easy Pickens first half) and rumors abound about new trails in the works. Better maps make it easier to find everything, and new signage is appearing around the place too.

Pay and sign-in at the trailhead/Boomer's Bicycles, rather than at the Saloon as before. The trails and the saloon/cafe/camping are under seperate management now.
