Features -none-

Overview

Almost entirely non-pavement with lots of really fun trails, wildlife, and being alone.

Need to Know

Bathrooms and water at Skate park near Dog park. You'll run by some businesses near Pico.

Runner Notes

Watch our for off-leash dogs.

Description

Start at Utiltiy Access Road on Salvador, make interesting to Dog Park, connect to Ridgeline Trail around Talega, back to Dog Park, and then back to Salvador. There are plenty of variations possible.

Flora & Fauna

I've seen rattlesnakes, coyotes, and even a bobcat - all wanted nothing to do with me.
