During this bygone era, Whiskey Hill in Woodside, CA really lived up to its name offering strong local brews to loggers and travelers while "taking tea" during their commute up and over the Santa Cruz Mountains. You won't be served any brew or shine during this run, but we will provide you with all the necessary favorites among the trail running community.
