The Canada Goose Hiking Trail parallels the Des Lacs River in the Des Lacs National Wildlife Refuge, just outside of Kenmare, ND. The northeast corner of North Dakota is seldom visited by tourists, but the few trails that exist in this area allow runners to see abundant wildlife as they follow rolling hills next to large rivers and lakes.
Route: Colorado Trail, Northbound (Durango to Denver), taking Collegiate West option, Unsupported solo.
The Welsh three peaks is a very well established and used FKT in its own right. There are times for people completing the route ie combined time to summit each mountain as well as a total route completed cycling between each mountain.
Gorgeous & interesting point to point on extremely well maintained rail trail. This route begins at GAP Mile Marker 72 on a footbridge over the Youghiogheny River in Ohiopyle, PA, a popular hiking and rafting destination. It then follows the river along the historic rail route cut through the wooded and rocky Allegheny Mountain Range area. At the town of Confluence, PA, the path leaves the Yough at a major dam and begins to meander alongside & over the winding Casselman River. There are too many charming old trestles & river views to count during the middle 35 miles.
