RunningGreat!

Absolutely stunning. 28 miles of pure Sierra magic. A few good water fills were still trickling in the beginning of August, but I made the mistake of not completely filling up. This was easily the most spectacular adventure I’ve ever been on. Can’t recommend it enough.

First to Review

A lot of elevation gain, up and down. Very remote. Only saw 20 people for first 21.5 miles. 40 people from Frogs Lake to Carson Pass.
