Run Hollenbeck Canyon instead of the San Diego 100

Not running in the SD 100 Saturday? Come out to Hollenbeck Canyon!

Saturday, June 8th @ 6:30 am 
Trailhead Loaction (Google Maps): 1820 Honey Springs Rd Jamul, CA 91935

Directions: From San Diego take 94 East (Campo Road) past Jamul and turn left onto Honey Springs Road. Trailhead is just 1/10th of a mile up ahead on your left.

Description: Run along the edge (literally) of Hollenbeck Canyon. If you have not been here before, you're missing out on some beautiful trails.

There's a 7 mile and a 6 mile loop that share some of the same trail and have some challenging hills. If you want to try both loops you can get in 13 miles. There are other trails I have not explored if you're feeling adventurous. Or if you want to take it easy, there's a beautiful 4.5 mile out & back that travels over the best parts of the trail.

Good for hikers too.

There's a porta potty at the trailhead, but other than that there is no support. Bring plenty of fluids, it gets hot out there.

Here's the 13 miler (6 mile + 7 mile loop)

Here's the out and back 4.5 miler. You get to skip the big hill : )

See you Saturday 6:30 am at the trailhead!

P.S. GOOD LUCK SD 100 MILE RUNNERS!!!!!

    I most likely won't be able to make it out on Saturday but was looking for a new trail to run tomorrow morning and this sounds like a good one. Are the trails pretty easy to see/find along the way? I've never been out there before.

      Made a wrong turn out there and ended up just doing a random out-and-back of about 7.3 miles. Lots of trails out there and a very nice secluded area. Thanks for the info.

      Yeah, I needed a map the 1st time I went out there. I know a few ways to go but there are plenty of unexplored trails.
