08/12/2018 New Map 946. WILDERNESS BACKROADS starting at the Wilderness Center.
A new 46 mile ride originated by Paul Tucci starting at the Wilderness Center, 9877 Alabama Ave, Wilmot, OH.
Paul says "the road surface conditions include loose gravel, ruts/buggy ruts, potholes, deteriorated pavement,
possible shallow standing water in a few spots and road apples". You might want to leave the skinny tires at home.
Hills add to the challenge with 2936 ft of gain. There is a lunch stop in Mt Eaton. Rest rooms are available at
TWC even when the building is closed.
Jeff Corney Executive Director at the Wilderness Center said that TWC welcomes cyclists and is currently talking
with Stark Parks regarding a connection to the Towpath Trail system. This would be a great addition to the Towpath!
Bike club members who are also Friends of Stark Parks might want to talk this up with the folks out there at Sippo Lake.
