Today called for a long run, but we went for a fairly short 11 miler. However, it was a trail run with plenty of climbing on trails I had not previously been on on Huntsville Mountain and Green Mountain. The total elevation gain was almost 1800 feet, 500 feet more than my usual Ranger Station out & back trail run. Ed, James, Jason and I went out at 6AM for a fantastic out & back trail run providing some fantastic views of Huntsville and the surrounding areas once we reached the ridges of the mountains. This was Jason's backyard and he picked the route for today's run. I was glad to check out some different trails. Looks like there are endless trail running possibilities in Huntsville and not just on Monte Sano Mountain.
