6/18 KT*50k

This is a running event.  bike bFAT has offered up support leading into and during this event on the trail.  Hoping for a good turn out for the 50k and the 10k. 

 6:05 is my best self supported crossing time, on a bike.  They will be running a slightly shorter route, with some other trails added through the scout camp.  This makes the finish logistically much nicer than the isolated mile 0 trailhead. I have always bypassed mile 13 so their apples is like my orange.  Really can't say who will prove faster.  Should be interesting to say the least. 

This track is a loop and the last 10k follows the KT*50k XC trail race as I understand it. After picking up the KT west (yWy blaze) at the head of Big Cabell Creek get to and follow ridge to depart KT onto Ol' Baldy Trail sign. follow blue blaze then no blaze all the way to the bottom to Sleepy Hollow CG.   Pick up eastbound KT (wYw blaze) at Laurel Hollow sign. go up.  Pick up blue blaze (to the right)  near the top picking up the ridge top at the last chance (orange ribbon). Follow un-blazed ridge to the Adahi along down the river and finish straight to the Lower Lake.

This profile takes up again at the head of Big Cabell follows the KT*50k race course to the finish (as I know it).

 

 

Noting how funny the GPS'ing is so squiggly in the work sections, didn't feel like we bounced around that much.   Still some work in some areas the BSA trail crews will be hitting the maintenance in the weeks leading up to the event.  Lots of ground to cover, over 32+ miles.  

 

*Includes KT, Adahi, and other Boy Scout trails.

Barboursville FAT Tire Brethren

Beech Fork Association of Trails

 

 

bFAT is an informal group of riders who appreciate the land and ride for a healthy well being.

 

 

Beech Fork is mostly a single track trail that follows around the lake leading into a combination of creek bed, hill climb, and fast downhill back to the lake.  Barboursville's Park has some nice runs from the top with  numerous scenic overlooks from the  sheer  cliffs and steep drops. The flat single track that follows the river and comes out behind the lake - is where the real fun can begin or end. Click on the link at top of page - above left to see a map!    The  Kanawha Trace and Adahi Trails are 32 mile and  17 mile multi user trails crossing over private land.  Check with the Tri-State Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America for trail information and registration.
