You will run on scenic, hilly trails and fire roads. You will run through peaceful oak forests, wide-open meadows, and along ridges with spectacular views of the Santa Clara Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains...the 50K is challenging with 5,800+ Feet of Elevation Gain on rocky steep trails and there are rattlesnakes!

Notes: Did this as a hike up the mountains, jogged the flat and downhill sections- legs(esp quads) still very tired from Miwok 100K where I finished 56 miles moving at a much faster pace on the downhill and flat sections. Fell twice during a rocky, single track trail descent, bloodying both knees & elbow, and scraping arms, shoulder & hip.
