Lost Lake Trail (two) week(s) before the race

Edit: As noted below, the date has moved back a week.  Otherwise still 8:30 am Saturday.  The trail crew goes through three weeks before, it turns out...

Other trail runner folks will be kindly brushing and otherwise prepping Lost Lake Trail for the gaggle of runners due to run down it during the Lost Lake Race over the weekend that proceeds this event, but as the race doesn't occur until two weeks after the trail crew goes through, that means that the trail will be ready, in perfect condition, on August 16/17th.  So let's go run it!

Tentatively, let's meet at Huffman Carrs parking lot at 8:30 am for a longish day up and back.  Hopefully we get enough folks that we can make two cars comfortably work, as Lost Lake is a wonderful 16 mile stretch of historic Alaska Road Commission trail that runs along a high mountain ridge above Seward, point to point from present day USFS trail head parking facilities.  It's truly one of our local trail gems, so if you haven't done it before, it's worth the trip.  More information is available here: http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/aktrails/ats/ken/lostlk.htm

    With apologies, I think we should jump back a week to Sunday the 9th because (1) the trail is actually being cleared on the first weekend of the month and (2) big wild life races are on the 17th (and I'm already signed up for the 49k). Does anyone have any objection to this, or to going on Saturday the 8th if not the 9th?

      James, I won't be able to join you on the new date as I will be traveling from the East Coast that day. But no worries, enjoy it.

    Great! I just saw you changed the date, which fits perfectly! We'll be out on a fishing boat and out of touch with the world, but we'll be getting in just in time to meet everyone at the trailhead around 10:30am. We don't mind waiting around. See you Saturday!
