Illustrations by Ashleigh Corrin

Difficulty Level

Moderate, recreational runners in good shape

Distance

6 miles for the loop

Good to Know

Dog Friendly

Free Parking

Where

Park on Genesee Avenue just south of the 52 on-ramp and follow the trail either east or west and come back, or do a full loop.

 

What to Instagram

The woodsy paths meandering through fields of flowers.

 

Why We Love It

It’s great for a trail run or easy hike and is near the coast, meaning it doesn’t get too hot.

 

Where to Refuel

Go for the New Zealand Brekkie at Queenstown Bistro in Westfield UTC, which boasts a brunch menu of biscuits and French toast pudding, plus lunch staples.
