Meadow Campground to Committee Crossing.

Going to run the Trek this year, but the last time I was up there, we got to Committee just as it was getting dark, so I am unsure....

Can someone tell me how the trail is running backwards from Meadow to Committee, taking all the bypasses?

I'm trying to figure out if it's smart or not to run back this way to the trailhead by myself (while it's dark) -or- if anyone wants to run this with me. Wednesday, late evening would be best, but Thursday or Friday after the runs would work too.

I would put a range of 1 1/2 hr to 4 hr based on the above, traffic, and luck.

If I were you I'd take theses guys up on the offer, you'll have some fun.

Time wise it depends if you like to run the trail in 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

Is that maybe called Fordyce Lakes Rd or HWY 85 on Google Maps?

How is that road, from Meadow to Cisco?

Yep Fordyce Lake RD. The road is nowhere near as rough as the trail, but you need to do the trail to get to the road. For the record. my 30 min Meadow to Fordyce lake is in no way the average persons time. Myself and others have wheeled sections of the trail at night by ourselves. If you are not familiar with the trail I would not recommend running that section of the trail by yourself.

Cool.. thanks. I've only run it once, so probably not a great idea.

Your best bet is to tag along with some other guys.That section of trail is pretty rough at night if you are not familiar. You'll have way more fun if you run wih some oher rigs.
