Backcountry Trail Run - The Enchantments


Backcountry Trail Run - The Enchantments

Ultralight hike/run in a day. Will not be running the whole thing so please do not be discouraged. Baby goats galore

  • Very Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 18.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 6,500 ft
  • Pace: Doing Our Best

Meeting place & time specifics TBD. Plan on an early start to maximize on daylight. 

This will be a point to point with cars staged for shuttling which will need some carpooling. The plan is to hike/run this in a day, even though it is listed as a trail run since it will be a faster pace hike than if we were backpack it. There may be some sections we jog/run pending on group energy & safety.

Plan on packing lite & swift almost as if we were fact packing. Hardest part will be the hike up Aasgard Pass. 

There will be some technical sections that require some face in down climbing with spotting, traversing in low exposed areas and slabby fun. Scramble skills preferable. 

The plan is this track on GAIA.

More info to come.
