We will be taking it easy and will be running and hiking this beautiful trail. Floris is also bringing his camera to shoot photos for the PATH projects blog, similar to our recent San Francisco group run. 

If you want to join, here are the details:

  • Kendall Katwalk Trail is a 14.1 mile out and back trail located near Snoqualmie Pass, Washington that features a lake and is rated as difficult.
  • Meet up time: 5:30am
  • Run starts at 5:45 am
  • Directions:¬†From Seattle, east on I-90 to exit 52. North off the freeway, first right into PCT-North parking lot.¬†
  • Meeting spot is at beginning of the trailhead, located at the east end of the parking lot.
  • Elevation gain is about 3200 feet, so there is definitely some climbing.¬†
  • Full map
  • Photos
  • Federal Northwest Forest Pass is required and can be purchased at REI, Big 5 or on the¬†Forest Service website.¬†

Not sure what time we will be done by. If you like to join for part of it, the trail is a heavily trafficked out and back, so you can turn around any time you want. 

If you have any questions, email Floris at

We look forward to seeing some of you guys on Sunday! More group runs coming up in other cities too in Chicago, Sacramento, New York, San Diego, Los Angeles and more locations. Stay tuned for more info!

    Jeff Smith
  • Come run along the north shore in Minnesota! The Superior Hiking Trail is fantastic. There are plenty of towns to visit but Duluth has the most to offer. Hope to see you up this direction!

    Brandon Johnson
  • Grand Junction, Colorado! Mary’s Loop is a stunning desert singletrack that follows the Colorado River along the top of a canyon.

    Iain Cooley
  • Come run in Golden, Co at North Table Mountain and finish at New Terrain Brewing Company. Our growing run club (Arvada Runners) would love to host you and get the word out.

    Donnie Hinshaw
  • Come run in Birmingham Alabama and give the hot weather gear a trail test at Oak Mountain State Park.

  • Right outside Charlotte, NC is the US National Whitewater Center that‚Äôs home to over 40 miles of trails; would be an awesome spot for a future group run!

    Dan Blackmon
  • Arcadia Bluffs trail along the shore of Lake Michigan

    Tim Gunnett
  • Come to the Wildwood trail in portland, Or.

    Jerry Punket
  • Come to Brown County Indiana and bring your mountain bikes, when you are done running the trails you can carve up some midwestern trails on your bikes! Good beer and pizza is five minutes down the road when you are done, and really what more could you ask for?

    Andrew McMasters
  • Path Projects come to Roanoke, Virginia. Hundreds of trails and gorgeous scenery! My personal favorite is the ‚ÄúAndy Layne‚ÄĚ trail just southwest of Roanoke and about 5 miles round trip, however if you want more miles, from the peak, there is a connecting trail that leads to McAfee‚Äôs Knob (an additional 5.5 one way) making for a 15 miler total, but well worth the views!

  • If you’re ever in Central New York — Syracuse area — check out Green Lakes for a shady trail loop with some optional hill work.

    Matt Kohlstedt
  • I’d love to join a PATH projects group run along the New England Trail, it’s a 215 mile trail beginning in my hometown of Guilford, CT and running through 40+ communities in CT and MA to the border of NH. The trail offers no shortage of great views and challenging terrain though I’m partial to the portion that runs along the Durham/Middlefield/Meriden section of Metacomet Ridge and Mount Higby, it’s comprised mostly of traprock with short but dramatic elevation changes. A hidden gem for CT trail runners.

    Jamie Murrett
  • Shut in ridge trail in Asheville, North Carolina. 18 miles and 5,000 feet of gain on beautiful western NC single Track

  • I second Wellington, NZ

  • Come to Wellington, NZ!

  • You should come to Philadelphia while your on the east coast! Take the Wissahickon Trail system (over 52 miles of trails) from Lafayette Hill, connect to Kelly Drive and run along the river to the art museum steps (Rocky style). Roughly 11 miles, but you could tack on a few more and run from the Art museum steps through love park and finish at Reading Terminal market and grab yourself a cheesesteak!

    Ross Wood
  • Rochester, NY – The Genesee Riverway Trail will give you 20+ miles to see the community. Cobbs Hill Park if you want to an view from above, or Mendon Ponds Park if you want some rugged packed dirt instead.

  • Middlebury, Vermont. Check out the trails, the mountains, and the amazing local food scene. Micro-brewing, micro-dairy, micro-distilling, Kombucha, Cider, grass-fed beef, pork, lamb, chicken, corn, tomatoes… It’s an amazing time to visit Addison County.

  • White mountains of NH

    Devin Sawtelle
  • Come to Chicago! Great trails just outside of the city in the Palos trail system, although running along the lakefront path in the city provides a one-of-a-kind experience to enjoy public access to the shore of Lake Michigan and a world-class skyline

    Greg Smith
  • New Hampshire and anywhere around the White Mountains

    Adam Tyson
  • New Hampshire and anywhere in the White Mountains.
    Adam Tyson
  • Only you can help keep Colorado Springs, CO lame! Shout out to m‚Äôdude up in Lakewood though

    Brandon Jeffs
  • In Texas, two places come to mind.. there are the Franklin Mountains in El Paso and Big Bend National Park. Both gorgeous. Or, without mountains, I’d say Austin bc it’s also beautiful- and I can join the group!

    Jacob Fetterolf
  • Kansas City – not too many off road trails. But we do have plenty of beautiful parks with great places to run!

  • How about a run in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park! About an hour outside of beautiful Knoxville TN! Or how about the Urban Wilderness. Over 50 miles of trails 5 minutes from the University of Tennessee campus.

    Blake Bohanan
  • If you want to enjoy the Beast Coast and be near civilization then you have to check out almost any trail in Harriman State Park. There are pristine lakes far from the crowds, spectacular views, and interesting remains of abandoned towns and mines.

    Gedaliah Robinson
  • Come to Austin, TX! There are some beautiful trails (no mountains, just hills) and my husband will gladly be a PATH model. ;)

  • Mount Kessler Regional Park in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Hot & humid!

  • Chicago!

    Mendel K
  • Come across the ocean to beautiful Okinawa, Japan. You can do some jungle running.

    Luke Steele
  • Figueroa Mountain in Los Olivos CA

    Dave Axberg
  • Huntsville State Park here in Texas!

    Sean Grimes
  • Roanoke, VA! We have a great trail running scene here in the southeast but get little love. Great runs throughout the Blue Ridge Mtns and along the scenic Appalachian Trail. It looks like you’ve covered most of the other areas in the country (west, northwest, midwest, northeast, etc). You’re “hot weather running” gear would be well-received in the southeast!!

    Skip Slocum
  • How about the Santa Monica mountains, San Bernadino mountains or Point Mugu/Sycamore Canyon?

  • The UK! Be great to see you over here and hitting some hills.

    Nathan Pettit
  • Redding, CA!! It‚Äôs not a big city, but what it lacks in its population size, it makes up for by location. Near Mt Shasta, Trinity Alps, Lassen National Park, and Whiskeytown National Park. Lots of wonderful options for trail running!!

    Ben Krager
  • Embudito canyon in Albuquerque, NM. The high desert at the end of the Rockies. Perfect for warm weather gear.

    Christopher Bratton
  • My dad lives in Chico, CA and it‚Äôs regularly over 100 degrees in the summer. He started running after watching me run Boston 2017 & has since run 4 half marathons and is training for his 5th. He‚Äôd love this kit!

  • Running on the American Tobacco Trail in Apex. This kit would be awesome for that.

    Kenny F
  • Tracktown USA! Eugene, OR. Gotta check out Pre‚Äôs Trail, the Ridgeline system, and Mt. Pisgah. All within 10-15 minutes of each other.

    Daniel Perry
  • Loudonville, Ohio on the Mohican State Park mountain bike trail! 20 mile loop with plenty of hills, perfectly maintained trails and some of the best scenery in Ohio.

    Jamie Owen
  • Please set up a group run in Cleveland, Ohio at the North Chagrin Cleveland Metroparks Reservation. Start at Squires Castle and participants can do a loop varying from 4-20 miles.

    Blake Owen
  • Stone steps and rest of Mt Airy forest in Cincinnati, OH

    Nick Helferich
  • Umstead Park in Raleigh, NC. Perfect for the warm weather gear!

    Dave K
  • Hyalite area south of Bozeman, Montana. The Hyalite Peak / Devils Backbone trail is awesome this time of year and best done in groups.

  • Green Mountain, Lakewood, Colorado.

    John Knowles
  • Minneapolis or St. Paul, MN. Any of the numerous bike trails would be great.

    Chris Carter
  • Los √Āngeles, Mt Wilson trail. Or anything in the LA forest.

  • Gotta come to Connecticut and western Massachusetts! Southern New England has some amazing and technical trails. It‚Äôs not typically what you think of when you think of Connecticut, but there is a healthy and thriving trail running community here!
