Enjoy views of rugged cliffs, sandy beaches and vast expanse of the ocean at the "Mountain of Gold". The 8K course has minimal climbing and runs along the bluff. For sweeping views of the ocean and inland mountains, try the 13K course that brings you up the 1,347-foot Valencia Peak. The 25 km course consists of two loops, the 13K route and then head out to the 1076-foot grassy summit of Hazard Peak. Not enough climbing? Complete the 25 Km route twice for a 50 Km day!
(Distances are accurately measured using a Rolatape® surveyor's measuring wheel.)
