Palmer Trail Loop / Section 16

5.41 Miles 47:29 8:46 average per mile
11:00 am) 60's Sunny!
Elevation Gain: 1,436 ft
Elevation Loss: 1,433 ft
Min Elevation: 6,602 ft
Max Elevation: 7,858 ft
Man I love this loop! Not sure why I haven't run it more. The
first couple miles are very hard I would say harder than Barr
Trail. Then you get treated to over 3 miles of downhill running.
This is going to be a weekly run from here out. The hard section
is so steep that I hiked some of it. I hope to get stronger and
run this entire section.
Here is my splits to give you an idea of the terrain.
Mile 1 10:29
Mile 2 14:03
Mile 3 7:23
Mile 4 6:35
Mile 5 6:21
Mile 5.41 (2:37) 6:22
My watch said 5.41 but my guess is this loop is 5.5. It's very
wooded and lots of switchbacks.
