“A nice run through Santiago Creek Regional Park to a peak with nice views.”— John McKinney
Many of the park trails are multi-use. Know the right-of-way rules and pay attention for other users.
Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.
If you have the time after running the trail, there are some interesting places to explore within the park. The Historic Dam Trail leads to a dam that was built in 1879 by the Serrano and Carpenter Water Company. The original dam, made of clay, was destroyed by floods and in 1892 was replaced with another one built of rock and cement.
