I ran the FPT in a new fkt time of 4hr 31min 20sec. The trail was in almost perfect conditions, with only a bit of leaves covering the rocks and roots causing a few stubbed toes... The fall colours are also very pleasing on the eyes right now and the summer like temps made for a gorgeous day!
I ran the FPT on June 8th, 2017, in a time of 4:19:48 (according the the Strava CR). Trail was super wet, from the spring flooding, and washed out in places. However, still a very beautiful and inspiring loop. Have fun out there!
