Just gonna post all these pics first and then give some brief commentary at the end.
I started at Skyline Gate and did the West Ridge -> French -> Orchard -> Bridle -> Stream loop (7.89 miles) in 1:29:13 (+1,129 feet of elevation gain) for an 11:18 per mile pace. Then I did the East Ridge -> Canyon -> Stream loop (6.22 miles) in 1:09:10 (+911 ft. of gain) for an 11:07 pace.
The trails ranged in consistency anywhere from mildly damp to chocolate pudding and various states between. That nice puddle above made it so I had to get wet up to almost the knee to cross (after staying relatively dry for the majority of the first loop).
So, all told it was a 14.11 mile day with +2,040 feet of climbing in 2:38:23 (11:13 per mile pace). Lots of fun.
I’m going back tomorrow to do a speed attempt on the first loop (my PR on that loop is 1:17:35 for a 9:50/mile pace).
