Started from the north trailhead at 7:40am.  Trail conditions were great apart from the fallen leaves and pine needles making the trail a bit hard to follow and covering up the roots!  I had the route saved on my watch to ensure I didn't take any wrong turns, but I still managed to get off trail on two separate occasions.  Fortunately, I realized my mistake pretty quickly and didn't get too much bonus mileage.  I carried my water and food for the run, as there are no clean water sources on the trail that I know of.  My 1 L of Tailwind and 500ml of water was sufficient fluid as the temps were fairly mild.  Overall, I really enjoyed the trail and look forward to running the entire trail once the bridge to the Kirby Nature Trail is open.
