The Skyline trail in the Beavers Bend State Park is a tougher trail option; the last mile is ran on the park road to make it a complete loop. It's a beautiful but challenging trail, very rocky with some steep hills. I ran this after a night of storming, so i expect my time to be crushed. I wanted to set a fkt on this trail so other runners visiting the park can experience this great trail and push the limit on time. My watch might be off a tad on mileage, I thought the trail was closer to 9 miles for the complete loop. I ran this clockwise, started at the Skyline/cedar bluff trail head.
