Turned a nice 11 miler into 17 miles by getting lost in Phleger Estate Reserve and ending up at Huddart Park 10 minutes before dark. We had no choice but to run down Kings Mountain as we could not risk taking trails in the pitch black. It was an experience. Was having a fantastic run at Phleger which I have never been to. Really incredible trails, no people, and a great trail. How we got lost is still a mystery, but somehow we managed it. Not fun having to do 6 miles on the road, but we survived. Not sure my wife is too thrilled with my exploits, but hopefully I can work on that one this weekend.

Duc and I did this run in preparation for our E*trade to the Sea run in Jan. Planned on doing the Crystal Springs trail from Edgewood road into Phleger up Miramonontes Trail, Raymundo Trail, and Lonely Trail, but ended up doing a hell of a lot more. We even turned around 4/10 of a mile or so from Skyline as it was getting dark. Oh well. We know what to expect on our epic journey from the desk life to the Redwoods.
