Hi,
I have a group of points, I want to create multiple rings that connect a maximum of five points at a time with the shortest distance possible between rings. I was searching specifically ESRI ArcGIS tools and was having trouble finding the best tool for this job. I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for a method or Tool to use that would make this task possible. Here is the group of Points I am working with.

Nevermind, I figured out a way to do it. They have to follow the roads, So I used a Road Network Layer and the Network Analysis Route tool to do it.
