A longer route than is submitted to FKT.  USFS signs say 13.75 miles, my GPS had it at just over 13.1.  Really thought this would be a more runnable course but it really wasn't in most areas so I misjudged the time it would take by a few hours.  The route takes you along 3 summits with the option to hit a few more along the way.  My gf was with me for this which probably slowed down the overall time by a bit as we stopped a lot to take pictures but no better company. No places to refuel or hydrate along the course. I packed just enough water to get me by but wish I would have had more as again, I didn't anticipate it taking much longer than 4-5 hours.
