I've been hiking the front range of the San Gabriels for over three decades. I'm still finding new things!
Excercise, fresh air, and beautiful views
so to do 2.6 miles in 40 minutes you must travel a little over a quarter lap per minute. didn't you say you are at 44 minutes? that means you have to make up a quarter mile. doesn't sound like much but if you are already going as fast as you can even taking off a minute is HUGE!
I went light. packed my hiking poles, some water and the minimum inside a REI Flash 18 Pack. I tried to jog the whole way which I did. but I do sub 40s regularly using my poles hiking. my pr is 38:36. funny that I can hike faster than I can run! :)
