Skyline Four-Park Ridge Run
Sunday, May 4, 2014
This is an especially scenic run, traversing four open space preserves with 360-degree views from the ocean to the bay and multiple transitions between ridge lines and woods. Hopefully, we will experience the wildflowers at Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve, one of the best places to enjoy them in May.
