Grateful for a feel-good, beautiful day to tackle this newer FKT route - Thank you to Kirsten Casey and Marisa Robba for putting together this route!

At the 5-mile mark into the Lower Dungeness Trail, the trail is washed out, so it required a scramble up the steep hillside (I noticed 1-2 cairns), over, then back down. First time ascending up into Tull Canyon to see the plane crash wreck - I tiptoed on the logs across the pond/swamp, touched the main skeleton of the plane, then turned around to begin the long descent back down Tubal Cain and Gold Creek. Lots of cruisy sections of singletrack. Fun long run to add to the memory bank!
