Course Description

These trails are spectacular in natural diversity and a landmark of California history, having been a site of 135 mining activities. The trails in this park are absolutely stunning and the views are breathtaking! This is the most challenging course we offer, you definitely earn those amazing views! The park offers some of the most amazing wildflower displays of the region. You will see several remnants of the mining era throughout the park, offering an exciting look at mining structures during your run. The race starts at the Mocking Bird Hill parking lot and follows New Almaden Trail with the first aid station being at Webb Canyon Trail and continuing to the Mine Hill Trail. The second aid station will be on the Mine Hill Trail. Take Mine Hill Trail to Guadalupe Trail back to Mine Hill Trail. Run on Mine Hill Trail to Guadalupe Trail to Castillero Trail to English Camp Trail. English Camp Trail to Hacienda Trail and finish on Virl O Norton Trail. That completes the first loop and there's one more to run. The course is hilly going out on mostly shady single track on New Almaden Trail with some short steep hills and mostly exposed fire road on the other trails. The whole loop has good footing with a few exceptions. Aid stations will be positioned about every 3 to 4 miles. Please carry water accordingly.
