Description

The Sun Circle is an archeo-astronomical monument. This public art project consists of eight curved stone structures that are aligned to be oriented with the sunrise and sunset at the solstices and equinoxes. There are plenty of benches to enjoy this gem while on a break from your run.

Short Run: This gem is located approximately a half mile WNW of the parking lot on the south side of River Rd that is just west of N. La Canada Dr.
