|In Kink, it seems like most of the trails go over swamp, rivers, lakes, etc. Those won't be usable for a long time.
Again, you'd have to go up north pretty far to get to safe trails. Mushers also have jobs to work around, so you sometimes have a small time frame to get the miles in. I don't get home until around 3:30, so I can only fit in a 25-30 mile run. If I drive to trails, I could probably do a 10 mile run only just because of time constraints.
Just to clear up what a highway trail is... They're not on the road- they are normally about 10-15 feet off the pavement and gravel parts of the road. Normally following power lines (we call ours the Power line Trail), but not always. It's pretty much a multi-use trail for everyone that doesn't drive.
