This trail requires a lot of route finding and the lava boulders fields are intense! Beautiful fall day and the colors were just perfect. It was cloudy and cool but got peak-a-boo views of the mountain throughout the run. Brought about 1400 calories and a liter of water, filled up 1/2 a liter twice at creeks. Elk and mountain goats everywhere! This was first time I've run this trail and knowing the route would definitely help bring down the time more as there are lots of places where the trail peters out (generally through the various flows, boulder fields, and creek crossings) and it can take a minute to figure out where to go.
