Course Description

A short distance to 2,805 ft. Saddle Peak will start with a beautiful ocean vista.  After a long descend to Piuma Road, we cross Malibu Canyon Road and climb up the Mesa Peak Motorway (steep long trail).  Then from the Corral Canyon parking lot, we run to the parking lot at Kanan Road--the end of the 2nd leg.   

MEETING LOCATION: Drive to the Kanan Road from PCH, and after going through a tunnel, the parking lot for the Backbone trail is at the left.  Then the fewest cars will leave at 6:30 AM to the start at the top of Stunt.
