Penny Pines Saturday Run: 1/4/14 @ 10 AM

PHHS Runners.   On Saturday Jan .4 we are planning a trail run on the Pacific Crest Trail, at Penny Pines. The run will be followed by going to Julian and having a meal, PIE I've heard!   We will meet at the trail head at 10:00.  So have a good pre run snack early.

This is an amazing run on a well maintained single track trail that is along the dividing line between the desert and the mountains. The overlooks are breathtaking. The trail is rolling hills with some rock, but is not difficult to run. An "out and back" run can be long or short.

We are hoping for good weather, but this run is at 6000+ feet in elevation, in the mountains and it is winter. Bring gloves and head gear, expect cold temperatures even if its sunny. ( I ran Christmas day with Lisa in two shirts, gloves and hat.)  Bring running drinks and trail snacks and have a good recovery drink and food for after the run. It will take some time to get to your meal /pie in Julian.

On the PHXCTF site you'll find directions to Penny Pines  (scroll to bottom of page).  Please be  advised that Wilderness passes are required. Carpooling is a great money saver and fewer Wilderness passes will be needed!
