You really think taking the trail was worth losing 30+ meters of climb? Was the forest that slow to run through?

Yes and yes, maybe even not factoring in the much greater potential for mistakes from a straight line. I think entering the trail immediately and then exiting where I ended up entering in reality is best. It wasn't that much slower going uphill compared to contouring given the generally poor footing and stuff grabbing at your legs.

Wow that seems crazy from the map, but makes sense.

I had the same reaction as Keegan. Just from the map, the trail route choice to 8 would never occur to me as a viable option. Fascinating how different the reality is!
