Description

From Long Swamp, the route begins a lollipop loop by running the 4 mile stick on trail # 342.  Connect to trail #375, #341, and then #343. The trail then reconnects with trail #342, for the 4 mile return trip to Long Swamp.

The route begins with a good climb towards Windy Peak. For the FKT, you must take the spur trail to the summit. At this point there are incredible, 360 degree views.  This is a special, high country route in the remote country of the Pasayten Wilderness. The loop offers a variety of different types of ecosystems and terrain to pass through, making for a unique adventure run.

This route was invented in the UltraPedestrian Wilderness Challenge group.
