Sweet---- thats the only way I know how to describe it. After picking up new trail runners in Damascus and slackpacking (well ok actually I wasn't even wearing a pack), I did the 21 miles in about 6 hours. I ran most of the ridgetops and walked anywhere it was rough ground or very much slope. The weather is fantastic. I did not take my camera with me because I wanted to go without a bag, but the views were great as well.
