Wild Mountain Runner Club - Condor Peak
The last 4 Sundays have been spent running with the San Fernando and Hansen Dam Wild Mountain Runners.
Elevation 5440 ft.
Today was one hell of a run. Starting at Sunland Park, Freddie Perez and I ran up into Big Tujunga Canyon all the way to Gold Creek Road. We were heading to the famous Condor Peak. We didn't plan on going all the way to the top, but we tore of a pretty good chunk out of it.
In the 80s and 90s, WMRs would park at the entrance to Gold Creek Road and do training runs to the top of Condor Peak. This is extremely wild country despite how close it is to LA. Amazing.
PS. Wore my huaraches. These made the insanely rocky trails totally tolerable.
