  • Fantastic destination for taking in nature. Even more so for those who love walking, hiking and trail running. The Telegraph Canyon Loop trail offers a 9.5 mile adventure with 1200 feet of elevation that can easily turn into 12-14 mile journey for those who don't pay attention to the trail markers. Please note that dogs are not allowed on the trail. Rattlesnakes and all sorts of creatures are commonly seen throughout the trails, so be prepared to steer clear. Visit from September through May for the best weather conditions.
  • I go here very often and if your running these trails, they're no joke. They're tough and will get your heart rate rising. I usually start at easy street and make my way to telegraph. Once there I head east, to what I call the cross roads. There and back is about 6 miles. At the crossroads telegraph splits off to about 4 different smaller trails. The first 2 trails closest to the sign are the ones that I usually take.They both finish at the same spot, one is a lot harder than the other which is the first left one starting at the sign. That's around 9 miles. If you were to go to the right of the sign, it would be around 8 miles. Both of those trails I mentioned drop you back off at the beginning of easy street/trail head. I do have to say that easy street is pretty over-grown other than that it's a really fun trail to go run/walk. Would reccomend!
