Nose to the Grindstone Time

I made it out of the house in the late afternoon and headed over to Deer Canyon in Laguna Coast Wilderness. I have this love/hate relationship with Deer Canyon. My love is that it’s a lot of single track with some exceptional views. My hate is it’s a run that is down down down into a canyon. Which means up up up back to the car.


Did I say exceptional views?


Did I say up up up? Here’s the trail coming back up out of the canyon:


And the elevation profile:

I made it out and back onto Red Tail Ridge just in time for this:


Oh to live in Southern California in winter!

Now for the unpleasant stuff:

  • Calorie budget: 1530
  • Calories consumed: 2066
  • Exercise allowance: 3.7 miles, 536 calories
  • Too few/(too many): (196)


  1. 1000 ft change in about a mile, I like it!

  2. Looks like a great place to run. I hope I make it to your side of the planet one day.
