1:05:10 official for the OAB, 32:00 one-way. FKTs have been getting a lot of action lately, and I figured this was the next reasonable one to do after Arcadia trail. I was hesitant to do this as I was worried about navigating (wasn't sure about the exact end) and that the pace was much faster than Arcadia. Neither ended up being issues, trail was mostly well marked and I drove past the end to clarify things for me. As for the pace, the trail is much easier than Arcadia. A few very hilly sections and a few technical sections, but mostly very runnable singletrack. Felt pretty flat on the hills, but kept a solid effort on the flats and downs. Similar effort as Arcadia- moderate, not hard but much faster since the terrain wasn't as hard (and it was 4 miles shorter). 32:00 out, 33:10 on the way back.
