Don't let the D-rating fool you, this is a soul crushing D3. It's difficult and it's an ULTRA FAST TRAINING HIKE - a percursor to the famed Vickery Creek QuickStep v8.6 & challenging v10.4. 

Join me as we light up the trails with a quick stepping hike that will get that heart rate & step count up right out of the gates...This D3 training hike may seem tame, but I assure you it's not your everyday social D3's a workout, and it's just what you'll need to move up the training chain to tapout on the v10.4! I'll take you along what I affectionately dub my "training grounds!" Conditions have been a little sloppy, so be prepared for some loose terrain - trekking poles are always advised. 

This is a FAST hike along various trails at Vickery Creek, but since it's the shorter of the three QuickStep formats, there are no formal stops planned. The average pace will be in the 15 minute range, but don't be surprised to see some 14's. If you haven't been on any FAST AOC D3 hikes here's your chance :: about a 4mph+ pace. Newbies will get the blanket email about fitness level. Hope you read this fully

Rain or Shine...althought I prefer the latter. 

P.S. Pay no attention to the map above it's just there as a guide
