Backbone--Leg #1 Will Rogers Park to Schueren Road

Water: 
Trailhead, Near Trippet
Restrooms: 
Trailhead, Hub, Near Trippet
Distance: 
18
From Will Rogers State Park we ascend the Backbone Trail with ocean glimpses of the Santa Monica Bay. The continuation to the Hub will next connect via Eagle Springs Road and Musch Trail. After refreshing-up at Trippet Ranch, we casually descend the Dead Horse Trail. After the lush Hondo Canyon, we take one last ascend to the top--finishing the first leg--with a view of the Santa Monica Bay and Catalina Island and the horizon is almost at the curvature of the earth. Beautiful! After one short trail to Schueren Road -the Fossil Ridge trail- there are fossils embedded into rocks seen at the right. Our first Bacbone trail section ends at the top of Stunt.
 
MEETING LOCATION: That morning, we will be meeting at the fork of Schueren Road and Stunt Road and we will carpool from there at 6:30 AM with the fewest cars possible to our start at Will Rogers State Park.

29th Annual Turkey Trot Fun Run

Date: 
Thu, 11/25/2010 (All day)

Our 29th Annual Turkey Trot is fast approaching. We have always scheduled it early so everyone can work up an appetite and be back in plenty of time to enjoy Thanksgiving. Our event is not to be confused with the Topanga Turkey Trot which had been on Saturday but has now been changed to Thursday.  This is “no fee” event established for ourselves and for the benefit of the trail running community.  See attached flyer.
