Sunday, February 15, 2015 Starting in Palo Alto's Arastradero Park, we run up and into Foothills Park through the 'secret' gate. Hilly for sure, but not extreme, with fabulous single track for about half of the route, this is the classic Palo Alto trail run. The Foothill Park section of the route offers Peninsula and Bay views as well as a sense of the wild. The long route runs 3 miles along the beautiful, and now flowing, Los Trancos Creek. Mapped routes of 7.3 & 13.6 miles.
Meet at 8:20am for an 8:30am start.
These are remote trail runs and so each runner is encouraged to carry at least one water bottle.
To avoid having to search for lost runners we ask that runners of approximately the same ability and ambition form groups and be accountable for group members.
There will be a runners' potluck after the run, so please bring a healthy drink or snack to share.
Maps and trail directions distributed at the run. The Google Maps Terrain View of the area is also illuminating. Distances and elevation gains are approximate. Click on the route map below to load the full size version.
