Noble Canyon Hike - MEET AT PENNY PINES TRAILHEAD ON SUNRISE HIGHWAY

Details

***BRING ENOUGH WATER***

Meet us at the Penny Pines Trailhead on Sunrise Highway (Google Maps address - 12030 Sunrise Highway, Pine Valley) at 9am. Since it's a point-to-point, some of us will shuttle everyone else to the starting point on Fire Department Road in Julian. After we're done, we'll drive everyone who parked at the top on Sunrise Highway back to the start. Problems? Call (or text if bad reception) Mike: 510-681-6453.

Like trails? Like hiking - or even running? Join us on Black Friday for an epic journey up the Noble Canyon Trail. There will mostly be hikers, but some of us may run it - don't worry, there will be peope going your speed who know where we're going! We'll start in Pine Valley at the Noble Canyon Trailhead, go up to where this excellent trail crosses Sunrise Highway at Penny Pines, and if we want, put in an extra bit to go out to the desert overlook before returning to the road. Total mileage with the overlook is about 13 miles, most of it uphill. I waited until late in the year so the temps are a little more pleasant out there.

Do note - some of us will run (some of) this, but the point is for this to be fun. So, anyone attempting to turn this into a trail half-marathon with 7 minute splits will be fed to the mountain lions!

Since this is an A-to-B hike, it will require a car shuttle, but we'll work all that out when we know who's coming as the date gets closer.
