Backbone Trail #2 “Stunt to Kanan”

Backbone Trail #2 “Stunt to Kanan”

We will run the entire Backbone Trail in 4 sections, this is the second one.
These are point to point runs and are a LOT OF FUN but require some organizing and cooperation of all participants to make the carpool work, before AND after the run. Please help out with the carpooling. We all have families and life activities waiting for us at home, if you can’t commit to the extra time then this might not be a good run for you.
These are for 2020 club members only!

We start this 18 mile stretch where we left off the previous Backbone section, at the top of Stunt.

It’s a a short distance to the 2,805 ft. Saddle Peak so we 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) up to Corral.  Then from the Corral Canyon parking lot, we run to the parking lot at Kanan Road–the end of this second Backbone section.

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