In March, we return to one of PARC's most liked trail systems, Wunderlich Park in Woodside. Along with several groves of majestically beautiful Redwoods, all of Wunderlich's trails are well shaded. With well-maintained trails, Wunderlich is just a short drive from Palo Alto.
Instead of our usual runner's pot luck, this month after the run we'll meet for brunch at Buck's in Woodside at 11:00. Runners from Saturday morning's Sawyer Camp group are also encouraged to join us there. This…Continue

FYI: Club sponsor Sportissimo is closing their Palo Alto store (the Los Gatos store remains open). Everything in the PA store is between 20-70%OFF until they close on February 28th. Better deals can be worked out (ex if buying 2 pairs of shoes you can probably get a better price).

In September, the Monthly Trail Run ventures deep into the Santa Cruz Mountains directly over the hill from Palo Alto. Water will likely still be flowing in the creeks and falls, and there are plenty of lush ferns and majestic redwood trees. This is a mostly-shaded course with a waterfall and a historic cabin site (with a who-dunnit mystery). Our route will also include neighboring …Continue

Along with several groves of majestically beautiful Redwoods, all of Wunderlich's trails are well shaded. With well maintained trails, Wunderlich is close to Palo Alto and the intermediate route is shorter than our usual making this month's run a good choice for beginning trail runners.
Brunch at nearby Buck's in Woodside after the run. Runners from Saturday morning's Sawyer Camp group are…

PARC's Monthly Trail Run heads to Castle Rock State Park this Saturday for runs of 6.5 or 9.2 miles on the high divide above Saratoga. The beginning of the route features a really cool (and somewhat rocky) trail along the top of the ridge's Western escarpment - the result: we run for miles with incredible vistas soaring over Big Basin and out to the Pacific and Monterey. The run back, on the Eastside of the…Continue
