Similar suggestion to others but with variations - I did a trip report on Hoosier Ridge combo options - summary snapshot below or full report here: ... m=tripmine

All of these are extremely easy from a technical standpoint - just a long rollercoaster of ups and downs. Silverheels as a finish was brutal but a great workout!

Thanks everyone! These are great suggestions. I'm most likely going to do Peak 8 or 10 one day and Decalibron the second training day.
