Santa Ynez to Trailer Canyon

Running Route

9.8 mi
2,022 ft
This run starts in Santa Ynez Canyon in Palisades Highlands. After a flat run through a cool, lush canyon, we climb to a fire road above Tripett Ranch. We continue up the fire road around Eagle Peak, along a level stretch with good San Fernando Valley and Ocean views and then drop down through Trailer Canyon to return to the starting point. It's been a long time Thanksgiving Day tradition for the Trail Runners Club.
