Our event is not to be confused with the Topanga Turkey Trot which is held the same date as ours. We will use orange arrows so our course will be clearly defined from theirs.

Course Description

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. This is Run # 18 in "50 Trail Runs in Southern California," and is a Thanksgiving Day tradition for the Trailrunners Club.
