This route covers some prime terrain over the rugged Blackhead range that intersects with the Escarpment trail. It includes the summits of Camel's Hump, Thomas Cole, Black Dome, and Blackhead mountains. Instead of a straight out and back, I ran down the Black Dome trail to the Batavia Kill trail to include the ascent of Blackhead from the Escarpment trail. The FKT covers 5100' of climb over 13 miles. I ran it in 2:25:27 on 6/26/16.
