Open to other methods...

I am hoping to settle on a method for mapping the most efficient path for surveying (walk/drive) 10 miles of city streets. I have 125 such scenarios.
The idea is to start at point A and wind through ALL of the streets, making U turns as needed, and arrive at Point B (end).

I am working with ArcMap's Network Analyst to get a good result, but in the meantime am open to low tech solutions as well.

Thanks! Chris

You can make some pretty colorful maps with it too!

A couple of years ago I made a network dataset for N. California, Oregon and S. Washington and made a handful of isochrones for the MPO's in Oregon.

I have attached one for Bend that my colleague Heath B. has contributed too and is continuing to develop.

Network data can get really, really complex and our Transportation Modelling group uses VISUM and/or EMME3 to handle the tangled labyrinth of really complex network models.
