Latigo / Stunt (Century Option)
Distance: 93 miles and 7200 feet of elevation gain (barometric)
All routes are the same through the two named climbs of the day. We start by heading out PCH to our first major climb – Latigo Canyon. This is a 7 mile climb topped off with two peaks. Then it’s down the Rock Store hill to lunch at the Rustic Canyon Store. After lunch we continue east along Mulholland Hwy to our 2nd major climb of the day – Stunt Rd. This is a 4 mile climb which is somewhat steeper than the Latigo climb. Once at the top, we cruise down to Topanga Village. Here the options split. This century option is the same as the inland return except that it adds a longer loop in the Valley. Like the inland return, it turns left at Topanga Cyn to go up and over Old Topanga and into the Valley. Then it departs from the inland return option to take a loop to the north Valley before returning to the inland route for its trip over Sepulveda and back to the start. On the map below, the red is the common portion of all routes and the blue indicates the inland return portion with the extra loop of this century option in green. This century option doesn’t add much climbing to the inland option.
