Are gpx files of the routes available so those of us that have GPS units can load our preferred route before the ride?
Really looking forward to this year's ride!
Thanks,
Jack

It was some great racing but with the weather, it certainly was a much shorter program.

Will-Kc,
Thank you for the gpx track. That looks like an excellent route!

Thank you for the information and what to look for to tell if it is public or not. That is what I expected as far as gates went but wanted to double check.

Like I said, last thing I want to do is make someone mad accidentally being where I'm not supposed to be.

Looking forward to a good weekend in a beautiful area.

Just because a gate is unlocked does not give you permission to ride on private property.  If a cattle guard is not gated, check for a posted sign.  Remember, you are riding a mapped public road (i.e. it will be numbered like 100/338), so the odds are it's an open road. Ranchers, by law, cannot gate a public road.  As a rancher, nothing pisses me off more that people that give a total disregard to private property and pass through gates that are not chained and locked.

Are we allowed to cross cattle guards?

I have seen in other posts where some people said if a gate is unlocked, it is ok to pass. Just shut the gate behind you. Any idea if this is true?

Hey jkuntz05,
I walked the tracks on Google earth and the only track that looks really iffy is the unknown road.  It looks like the track crosses several fence lines.  I have ridden the jeep roads in that area and they pretty much disappear into nothing but grass and then boom.... a fence/gate. The 338 track crosses several cattle guards... Don't be surprised to find a gate along with the guard.

Attached is a gpx of the route I led last year (scenic).  If the roads are still pretty wet the route section near the coon creek area can get pretty messy... lots of small water crossing in that section. The route section going north from swing creek is very pretty (open range).  Hope this helps.
Bill

We are going to have time to ride Friday and I have been trying to plan some routes.  I am not from the area but have ridden a couple stampedes in the area.  My question is about a few of the roads and whether they are public or private.  Last thing I want to do is make a rancher upset being somewhere I shouldn't and make our group look bad. 

Anyone that is familiar with the area around Teter Rock, 777 Ranch, and north of there, can you look at these gpx roads and give me your opinion?

Any other normal looking roads in the area that may actually be private?  Are there good signs / gates on the private roads so it is obvious?

Thank you.

Just noticed you said Santa Fe campground - I went ahead and booked site 6 at Neosho, no big deal, Iíll just buzz over there if you end up camping as well.
