This 1920s ridgeline trail, originally built to display the San Fernando Valley’s real estate potential, offers stunning northward views and southward vistas of canyons and the ocean. Don’t miss the remarkable sights from the Nike Missile Site overlook, presenting 360-degree views of Los Angeles and its surroundings.

Scheduled in late June, the race promises ideal L.A. summer weather – warm and sunny with clear skies and a gentle breeze, enhancing the natural beauty and challenge of the course. It’s an inviting setting for runners to enjoy the scenery and test their limits.
