San Jacinto

The second highest of the SoCal Big Three at 10,800' has several great routes to the top. Some of the best are better suited for hikes, but there is still plenty of great trail running to be had.

Suicide Rock

4/13/14  A camping trip to Idyllwild with friends gave me the chance for a quick run on Mt. San Jacinto up the Deer Springs Trail to Suicide Rock. About 8 miles round trip, including running back to the campsite, and over 2,000' of elevation gain.

Marion Mtn Trail

06/20/09  My first legitimate mountain trail running trip. 12 miles and almost 5000' of elevation gain, up the very steep Marion Mtn trail. When I was done, I was swearing I would never do something like that again. But for some reason, I was back at it the very next weekend.
