Griffith Park Run

What could be a better place to view the Hollywood Sign then from the trails at Griffith Park.

Annual 34th Thanksgiving Turkey Trot fun run

Mark you calendars "November 26" as we continue with our annual Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. A fun trail run open to everyone, free of charge to support the Santa Monica Mountains trail running community. Bring all your friends and family, non runners can join for an out & back hike by time. The trails are on State Parks property so no dogs allowed, sorry. We only ask that non-members sign a waiver before the start. The cost? Nothing, nada, zilch. Makes it pretty hard to come up with an excuse to not be there.

Baldy via Ski hut trail. Spring 2015

What a fun morning was had by Axel, Joe, Tin, Timmy, Brian, T.D., Skye and Ann. We all went up via the steep and technical Ski Hut trail. T.D. missed the start but found his way up via Baldy rd and we were united with him at the top of Mt. San Antonio, he got to do the Devils Backbone twice! Axel and Joe took off in the lead and were long gone home when we arrived back at the car. Great cool air at an altitude of 10,064ft, no chilling wind and some patches of snow. This little group of TRC dudes are a new experience richer today!

A wild 2015 wildflower season

This 2015 wild flower season has been beyond amazing so far. The Springs fire from May 2013 and the good amounts of rain we've had this winter have given the wildflowers the opportunity to flourish in the Western Santa Monica Mountains.

Today we had this run through Serrano Valley with fields full of purple lupines. Also patches of sunflower, poppies, paintbrush, indian warrior, etc...

Nordhoff ridge loop in Ojai

Dramatic cloud formations, hills in 50 shades of green, views to cry for, trails that make you feel a thousand dollars and after all that a wonderful lunch at this super quaint little Italian restaurant on the side of Hwy150. Nothing like some meatball sandwiches, lasagna, clamb showder and some fresh squized lemonade or orange juice to put runners in a good mood.
Ah, a good time was had by all ...
