Such a fun day out!! After attempting this loop two weeks ago with a friend and running into some poison oak and heat issues, I was stoked to head back out for a great day and cooler temps. Started right at sunrise and with the cooler weather and still running water, it could not have been a better day. This is a super runnable loop and I think could definitely be done in under 6 hours. The kickers are definitely the last two climbs before getting up on the ridge line, but this route has such beautiful flow to it. I did this coming off a long training week and took it pretty conservatively for all but the last 5 miles when I was just plan having fun pushing a little bit. This should be on all distance runners list for routes in Big Sur!!
