The Dismal 50km or "How to Maximize Elevation Gain in as Few Miles as Possible"

Over seven years ago, while starting my training for the Hardrock 100 Mile, I endeavored to come up with a local training run that would exceed 10,000’ of elevation gain in as few miles as possible and be on trails. After some thought and looking at maps of Monte Sano State Park I had an “Aha!” moment. You see, I discovered probably the best possible course, super steep, a ton of climb, a “loop” course and best of all right out my back gate! Unbelievable!
