Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot
It’s been a tradition since the very beginning of the Trail Runners Club. We go out for a 9 mile fun run in Topanga State Park, early enough to be back in time for the Thanksgiving festivities.
Family and friends are invited, it’s Free of charge, no medals and no t-shirts but we provide post run refreshments.
Non runners can go out for a hike and turn around after about 1 hr, this way they’ll be back at around the same time as runners doing the loop.
This run starts in Santa Ynez Canyon in Palisades Highlands. After a flat run through a cool, lush canyon, we climb to a fire road above Trippet Ranch. We continue up the fire road around Eagle Peak, along a level stretch with good San Fernando Valley and Ocean views and then drop down through Trailer Canyon to return to the starting point.
Distance: 9.8 miles
Elevation gain: 2,022 ft
