Movin Shoes Mountain Semi-MOnthly

Movin Shoes is revamping our old Mountain Monthly runs to be a more occasional series ... the details are to be worked out ... but we are going to host our next trail excursion (run or hike if you like) on January 26th with the location being:

....drum roll please ...

SECRET CANYON!

A great trail for running in the Alpine area. The trail is about 50min from the downtown San Diego area and skirts the edges of various canyons along Pine Valley Creek.

We will be starting at the bottom (trail head on Lyons Valley Road off of Japatul Valley Road).

http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2009/apr/22/secret-canyon-trail/ for some details.

A stop at Alpine Brewery on the way back MIGHT be in order.

More details later, but RSVP if you are interested, and we will keep you posted on the fun fun details.

    It was easy and intermediate level of running. Some drops and inclines on the trails were surprising, but not intimidating. lol. I liked the view of the mountains, creeks, and trees. Having just come back from doing a marathon made it little bit tough. Still it was good be out in the morning jogging around. Thanks, Mick for all your help guiding me along and great job everybody! :)

    I'm hoping to run/jog for 90 minutes or so...I have a ride out there, but would it be possible to get a ride back with someone?

      Yeah, Alpine Brewery is definitely okay. My husband is dropping me off and then heading up towards Descanso to hike. He may meet us in Alpine, if not I live in Normal Heights. Thanks!

      I live in Univ Heights, so no problem getting you home. Easy as pie.

    So I will plan on being on or near the trail for 3 hours. People are welcome to do as little or as much as they wish ... from hiking to running, but if you want to go more than 3 hours either add on at the start or let me know to not wait for you.

    This trail is so beautiful for any length of run or hike from 1 hour to forever.

      I will likely be moving at more of a hike pace, BTW.

      A carpool, eh? :) And how many seats are available??

      January 7, 2014

    • Mick G.

      My car holds 4. 2 are taken. Usually most come to the carpool spot and we ride share from there.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
