Recommended Directions And Stops

For the starting point, I suggest you get dropped off .2 miles west of State Line. Click this photo for actual google map.Silver Comet Trail Starting Point

The Silver Comet map suggests you get dropped off at the Esom Hill Trailhead, but then you have to run .3 miles BACKWARDS to start. Who wants to begin a 60+ mile run by going backwards!?!

Here are the pit locations I suggest which require the least amount of extra mileage.
