We ran from Afton SP parking lot. Only one horse trailer in the lot so maybe we won't see too many horses out there?
The first hill was an easy down. The uphill however, had branches blocking the way. Like most people, I thought it was a mistake so went down to the next turn and found more branches. I went back to the first pile and carefully stepped around them. At the top we saw the sign that said "closed". Oh.
We did a combination of Afton 25K and whatever trails we felt like running. When we finished the back loop we stopped and talked to Alicia. She knew about the trail closing and the Afton Trail Run organizers were aware of it and working on a course change.
It was our lucky day, a little over 4 hours and no horses.
