Santa Anita Canyon (Short)

Distance: 30 miles and 1000 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

All three routes are different today and diverge almost immediately. This short is about the same length as the medium, but doesn’t do the big climb up to Chantry and is much easier.  It starts by heading northeast to Sierra Madre before turning south into El Monte. It then heads to Temple City for lunch before making a loop through San Marino and Pasadena and then heading back to the start. There are a few hills and a long gradual grade, but nothing very difficult.
