Black Diamond (WA) trail run maybe Sunday AM?
Posted 15 October 2003 - 10:23 PM
The place is mostly loamy dirt (sorry not much rocks to crawl.) Plenty of hill climbs, tight turns, articulation, and trees that seem to have magnets in them. Of course there's water and mud to slosh around in too. Kind of creepy woods there I might add. Maybe a fun place for a Halloween run?
Where the heck is Kanaskat? Well it's east of Ravensdale which is east of Kent which is kinda near Black Diamond and Maple Valley. Here's a map, you can zoom out to get the big picture.
*EDIT* Ok apparently Mapquest doesn't allow linking directly to a map anymore. Just enter "Kanaskat Junction" for city and "WA" for state and that should get you a map.
On the map find "Kanasket Junction". That's the epicenter of the trail network. The entrance is easy to drive right past. Look on the east side of the main road kinda between SE 302nd and SE Courtney Road.

Add some concrete to your plans Mike.

have fun guys, bring back tons of pix.

Plans for Sunday are looking more promising. I should know for sure by Friday evening if I can go. Just thought I'd put it out there and see if anybody else is interested or curious. If it's a "go" then I'd suggest a 10am meet time at Four Corners (like last time.)

I get the car back Monday........ by the next weekend I should have the money for tires...... I'll be ready before the christmas tree runs!

Say definite Mike.
As for photos, if it's raing like it is now, cameras will never leave the car. . . That being the reason why I didn't film any of the rallyX last time for the first time. Damn new camera and me needing to be careful with it.

Would be fun to hit Kanasket and then run up to Evans for a while. There's still a few trails we haven't run in a while.

Have fun boys.

Looks like I'm good to "GO" for Sunday morning. Qman's plan of hitting Kanaskat first, then heading up to Evan's Creek sounds cool (though I'm probably only good for the first half of the day.)
As for a meeting time, how does 10:00am sound? And for a meeting place, is Four Corners good or should we just meet on the trails?
If it isn't raining and blowing too bad I'll proabably try doing some video. I've got a ziplock bag scupa suit for my camera so I'll risk moderate douching.

Call me todya Mike, we can talk about heading down there together. I'll also only be in it for Black Diamond. EC involves too much time and travel for this weekend.
