On Tuesday May 24, 2016 starting at 12:10PM I started from the Elk Lake Parking Area, and ran the route in the clockwise direction as Marckc7 had originally designated. It was a cool, clear day with few flies and mostly dry trail. Provided below are the splits to my day.
Dix (via Buckhorn): 1:40:46
South Dix: 2:19:10
East Dix: 2:41:56
Elk Lake Lot: 4:35:28
In addition to the route described above, I can only see that the ADK 46ers speed records by Ted Keizer, Jan Wellford, and Cory Delavalle were all set by entering the route by a bushwhack from Nippletop. I’d be interested to hear more of speed attempts in the region.
