CRANBERRY LAKE 50
ALL NIGHT SPEED HIKE
14 - 15 MAY, 2010


John, Mary, Barb, Doug, Rick, Chris, Ron and Jim: Ready to go.

Eight people completed the Cranberry Lake 50 miler on this weekend.  Departure time was around 7PM on a moonless Friday night.  Overall the trail conditions were reasonable by Adirondack standards with the exception of the many beaver dams obliterating the trail.  Finding a way around, over and through these areas was quite challenging - especially in the dark. The group averaged a pace of 2.5 - 3mph with the first hiker completing the course in 17.8 hours.  Total distance was around 47 miles given that some of the road sections on Rt. 3 were skipped. We're discussing the details of our hike in the Wakely Forum.

Here's a link to a Google Earth fly-over TOUR
After it loads, start tour by hitting the PLAY TOUR button top right.
Player controls will then appear bottom left so you can speed it up.
The trail overlay is not showing up so you can't see the actual trail once you go off road.
 Plus the camera swings wildly like a drunk driver.  These are Google Earth beta issues I guess.

Enjoy!
