Last month I received a number of interesting runs, including a few maps. I would like to put together a site for various favorite courses. This month, find a course you enjoy and either send a map, such as the samples below, or a brief description of the course. I will put each one up and hopefully, we will put the courses up on the SRRC site, too.This will give us a reference section for our local runners and visitors. The sites should be between and including Humboldt Redwoods and Prairie Creek State Parks. Although I will not be able to give 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. places, the event will count toward a the Circuit.
Be sure to include your name, age and time along with the course information.
This is a very popular and beautiful course. Begin at the parking lot for Clam Beach and run south. The trail becomes Letz Avenue at Airport Road, but then becomes the Hammond Trail again and continues to Arcata Bottoms.
This is one of my favorite runs, so pick a sunny day to run the Trinidad Head and Trails. The scenery is spectacular and the course is a good challenge.
Richard Engel suggested this course. He recommends doing the loop in the direction shown, as doing it the other way would make for some slippery downhill on the single-track section of the South Fork Janes Creek trail, under current rainy season conditions. 4.16 Miles.
