This event is tucked away in the incredibly beautiful foothills of the South Bay Area. This event is solely in Rancho Cañada del Oro Open Space Preserve

If you’re looking for easy and flat then move on. But the climbs are well worth it: At the top is a panoramic view of the entire Bay Area southward, plus the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains. 

This Preserve is loaded with single track trails, some very enjoyable fire roads to play on, incredible panoramic views, lots of beautiful foothills, and creeks. Also, there are lots of beautiful old oak trees to enjoy some shaded sections, but there is lots of exposed sections throughout the course, so come prepared.
