Upper Las Virgenes Canyon is the San Fernando Valley's Best Kept Secret! This is a fun little romp that may include some mud and puddle hopping depending on the weather in April! Located at the west end of the San Fernando Valley, these beautiful trails take you high up on Lasky Mesa to the site of Hollywood filming of "Gone With The Wind" and "Django Unchained" before bringing you down into Las Virgenes Canyon where you will run through lush riparian foliage abundant with spring wildflowers. Yes, there are hills, but "what goes up also comes back down".

Ahmanson Trails routes
On race day, the course is marked with surveyor ribbons and arrows on the ground. There is always a possibility that hikers may tamper with course markings and this cannot be controlled. Always keep your eyes alert to your whereabouts. It is unlike that you will get lost during the race but if you notice you are not seeing arrows or ribbons, simply back-track to the last mark you saw and follow the course markings from there.
Sweepers will head out from the starting line and will stay behind the last participant. Sweepers will pull ribbons and yes, they will actually carry brooms to sweep arrows. Because course markings may be removed From you, it is important that you always move forward on the race course, to avoid getting lost.
