25 myles - 3.57:40

Ring the peak trail - 6:30 A.M.
40s to 70s, clear, dry
mind/body - feeling good
easy effort

Got out for more "hidden trails" with the Giant Killer. Not really hidden, just not over populated with people like Barr trail. Rick and I are both doing Bear so for the past few weeks we've been accommodating each other by getting out on long runs. Earlier this year Rick and a group of the CRUD guys did the entire Ring the Peak circuit. Today we just did a couple sections and it was spectacular scenery, just like last week. We started in Chipita park and made our way up to Catamount ranch. On the way back we came around the South side of the Catamount reservoirs and then added on a little side trip up Mt. Esther. In all, 4320 ft of climbing and about 25 myles (only an estimation based on running time). Tony if you're going to do Ring the Peak I'd suggest getting in touch with either Rick or Steve Bremner and they will be able to connect you where the trail does not exist, would save you some time and heartache.
