**LAST MINUTE CHANGE UP FOR RAIN**
Join me as we "LIGHT" up the trails with a trail run mixed with some seriously fast hiking. Today's rain is forcing me to play it safe...LTMP has less trail debris, it's groomed better and it's much wider...so it's a lot easier to open it up for a rainy trail run! The LTMPTR will get that heart rate & step count up right out of the gate...This week day D4 trail run (which is more running than it is fast hiking) will see some small elevation, as I take you along what I affectionately dub my "training grounds!" We will do one loop clock-wise (plus the pond loop), then loop BACK around for a SECOND LOOP (plus pond loop) in the counterclockwise direction. This is NOT a "check out the scenery" event. Conditions have been a little sloppy out there, expect some loose terrain - trekking poles are always advised.
This FAST hike/trail run is along various trails at LTMP (in a top secret special direction) there are no formal stops planned. The average overall pace will be in the 12 minute/mile pace. So, if you haven't been on any FAST AOC D4 hikes recently you're probably not going to like this hike - saying it's fast is an undestatement. If I see you falling back pretty far within the first mile (or two) I will ask you to try again after a few months...Safety first, respect to the others second.
Rain or Shine...althought I prefer the latter.
|How to Get There:|
Arrive 10-15 minutes early to get head count and intros in.
Park in the gravel lot north (or left as you pull in) of the Art Center, and South of the paved lot where all the tourists park....see GPS LINK ABOVE, as the GPS link above is pretty accurate...just go to the far back lot to the left you'll see my Lil Sasquatch!
LEAVE NO TRACE!
TICKS are out..bug spray is ideal
