RUN, JOG, WALK, VOLUNTEER, CHEER
Come join us on the newest trail in Santa Barbara County for the 4th Annual Island View Trail Race on Sunday, September 15th . The race along Franklin Trail begins at Carpinteria High School, winding around the school parking lot, track field, and adjacent orchards where the trail emerges onto a lovely single track with magnificent ocean views. A steady climb and switch backs will take you up Franklin Canyon with numerous vistas along the way. From single track you run on dirt road alongside several ranches, well developed coastal scrub and mixed chaparral. The 4.0 mile course is an out and back, turning at the end of the single track trail. The 10.0 mile course is also an out and back but continues on dirt road towards the top of the hillside to the beginning of the Los Padres National Forest. The 16.0-mile course enters the Los Padres National Forest at 1700 feet and reaches the crest at 3700 feet — a gain of 2000 feet over three miles.
