    No trails will be marked, there are over 30 days to get to know and have fun with
    the trails involved in the COD.

    It's a pretty easy route once you go around it once.

    Looking forward to some pancakes!!!

    Frank, sounds great!!! But how about just the eastern part?

    --Chester Creek Trail > Frosty Bottom route to Tour Trail> past the rusty bridge> View Point> Moose Meadows> Rovers Run> past the rusty bridge> to tour trail> Frosty Bottom route back to Chester Creek Trail > Westchester check point. --

    I am pretty familiar with the Chester Creek to Kinkaid piece and would rather be fresh on the parts I am less familiar with.

    Lars- sure thing on the eastern portion, I'll still do a full lap as I want to see how long it takes. But we can make arrangements to meet at Westchester on my way back through- you won't have any problem figuring it out though. PM me so we don't clog the thread

    A full lap is around 40 miles? I think. Maybe even 44, can't recall now.

    Call it 40 miles, and if it turns out to be longer everyone that can survive the 6 hours of sweet nocturnal snaux grinding gets bragging rights until next time!

    Rio,

    Have you landed the course yet? I know when we spoke you were considering changing it to loops that went from Kincaid to Westchester Lagoon and back. The more I think about it, the better I like that idea.
