As I am adding this to the FKT site over a year past when I completed this run my details may be somewhat limited. This was a quick out and back run starting at the TH map/sign and running up the Bald Mountain Trail to the Fire Tower where I looped around the tower and continued the run back to the TH marker. The TH to Tower took me 09:40 to complete while the Tower back down to the TH took me 07:28 for a time of 17:08, rounding the tower and stopping to take a photo (which I can no longer find) brought me to my elapsed time of 17:32. I was fortunate to be in Old Forge during a nice and sunny stretch of late August, temperatures were mid to high 70s and the trail was dry.
