This will be my first Epic back and longest hike to date after my knee injury.

Once we reach the Glen Alps cut off, I will depart as my knee currently only allows for uphill travel.
Those remaining will step up the pace and jog the Middle Fork trail to a weather/participant dependent creek crossing and exciting bushwhack back to the Rim trail. A series of trails will link runners back to the Upper O’Malley trailhead.
