La Tuna Melt (Short)

Distance: 32 miles and 1400 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

Today the medium and this short stay together somewhat. They start together for the first 5 miles over to the Eagle Rock area. Then, while the medium climbs up Chevy Chase, this short takes an easier route up to the Rose Bowl area via Colorado Blvd. Near the Rose Bowl, the two routes come together again briefly, but then while the medium makes it’s loop  to Altadena and the climb up “Christmas Tree Lane, “ this short heads directly to lunch in Pasadena. All routes have the same return after lunch. This is mostly downhill and the last few miles are through Griffith Park. The main climb on the profile below is the trip up Colorado. This can be steep for about one mile.
