We have had a year of terrific trail runs: Angel Island, Montara Mtn, Tarwater Creek, .... This Sunday we finish out the year on the high spine of the Peninsula for this run up to the top of Black Mountain where 360-degree panoramic views stretch from the Bay out to the Pacific. The run then returns via the beautiful (and shady) Stevens Creek Nature Trail. Then a mile or so into the Los Trancos OSP to wonder at a stretch of the San Andreas fault.

Maps and other details…

Thanks to Ron and David for organizing today's trail run at Rodeo Beach, followed by a behind-the-scenes tour of The Marine Mammal Center.
