WIRW: Los Penasquitos Canyon

It’s time for another edition of Where I’ve Run Wednesday and today takes us to some amazing trails near La Jolla that once it’s spring/summer I spend a lot of time at.

It’s been a while since Sean & I have run at Los Penasquitos, but we spent a lot of time out there last spring & summer.  We done as many as 18 miles out there but our normal runs are either what we’ve called the Seal Run, which is really called Wagon Wheel which is about 3.5 miles or we will run to the waterfall, which is about 7 miles.

These trails are very popular with runners and mountain bikers, there are a lot of hills that you can add on for hill training and extra mileage.

The trails are pretty well kept, the entrances sometimes get over-run with weeds but for the most part it’s not too bad.  The last time we were there, the bridge to go across for the wagon wheel loop was out due to all the rain.  The water there was semi deep and it wasn’t worth getting our shoes wet to go through.  I’m hoping they will fix this soon though.

Now with Daylight Savings in effect, I’m looking forward to getting out to these trails more often.
