Lang Ranch 15 mile loop or 10 mile out & back
mileage: 15 miles
elevation gain: 2, 976 ft
This lollipop loop starts at Lang Ranch Neighborhood Park, starting on the sidewalk towards the yellow gate where Albertsons Fire road starts, from there you run a 3 mile section until you end up at a wide open spot, there we turn right to start the loop.
If you don’t want to commit to the entire loop: do not turn right at the 3 mile mark, instead keep following the fire road you are on. A good location to turn around is at the approximately 5 mile mark where you top out and have an amazing view, during clear days you can see all the way to Mt. Baldy.
This is one of my favorite training loops where we push the pace hard, it has four major climbs and the last 3.5 miles are mostly downhill.
Water and bathrooms at the start and finish.
Attention: parking is along neighborhood streets with the first little section on a gravel side walk, so please keep voices down early in the morning.
Skye is marking.
