    Percy Warner riding route

    My buddy and I will be riding Percy Warner this Saturday. We've never been out there, and I'm just wondering what is the best route to take to maximize fun and miles. We do want to hit all the jump lines and fun stuff.
    Looking at the map, I've got an idea of how we're going to ride it, but would like yall's opinion on the route.
    Starting at the Percy Golf trailhead:
    Left into Toybox
    Right onto Boulevard
    Left into Hookman Hill
    Right on Boulevard
    Left into Wabash (when Wabash splits, which way? Or do we circle back and hit both sides?)
    Right onto the end of Hop Project
    Left onto Boulevard
    Left into Hop Project. Ride the whole thing then ride half of it again to hit Humdinger
    Right into Humdinger
    Then back out to Boulevard and see how we feel.
    Does this sound right? Sorry for the lengthy post!
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Dirtdog. I don't see Rocky Top on the map, or am I just missing something?
    Yeah, we planned on sessioning(sic) wabash, and maybe humdinger.
    Thanks

    I usually do:

    Toybox
    Hookman
    Rocktyop->hop project
    Wabash right
    Wabash left (repeat these last two a few times)
    Hookman
    Toy box

    Depending how many loops of wabash I do, I end up with ~11-14 miles. Rockytop is the climb up to Humdinger/Hop Project. I don't usually do Humdinger because my XC bike isn't warrantied for "jumping" and I kinda need the warranty. I'm on the third frame as it stands.

    Thanks Cotharyus! I appreciate the info. We plan on riding Humdinger also, but we're on 140mm trail bikes, so we're comfortable with the drops. We're looking forward to sessioning both Wabash and Humdinger!

    "Rockytop" is the hill (and well named) that Humdinger and Hop Project are on. It's entry is at the Deep Wells exit.

    My full "loop", to ride it all is 11mi.

    Enter then left on Toybox, right to Hookman, right on the Boulevard to "Rockytop" (left at the Deep Wells exit) {let me say, I go from Hookman to Rockytop to have energy to climb Rockytop twice. The rocky step-ups and switch-backs suck it out of me.}, right to Humdinger, left back to Rockytop, straight to Hop Project, right to Wabash, left Wabash, right to Wabash, straight on right Wabash, right on the Boulevard. Just before the Boulevard turns to gravel approaching Hookman, I take the short connector on the right, to Toybox. Left on Toybox (That segment is two-way, so watch for climbers), right on the Boulevard to trail head.

    Simply, Toybox, Hookman, Humdinger, Hop Project, Wabash left, Wabash right, Toybox connector, 2-way Toybox = 11.

    It's good stuff and as much FUN as any trail in middle TN. Not too tough, but a lot of fun and variety!
