If you’re interested in running Nolan’s 14, one of the best way to preview the line is to fastpack it! You’ll get a taste of what it’s like to link up big parts of the route, without having to backtrack, and the load makes for good training. Episode 3 starts off on the summit of Mt. Columbia, and continues south.
If you’re interested in your own Slowlans trip, I do have a Slowlans guide out to help you plan your own trip.
