Super fun little loop. The FKT route starts at what was the old parking lot and is now a gravel pit. The new trailhead parking lot is about 1.5 miles up the road. Ran counterclockwise. Used two .6L Be Free flasks and refilled several times, water spots were plentiful. Maurtens gels and Gu Waffles for nutrition. Forgot gaiters, would’ve been nice. Got a little turned around at campsites trying to find the trail over Cedar River. A great day although conditons not totally ideal: little too hot, still wet, and there will be less blow down later in the season.
