The run along Franklin Trail begins at Carpinteria High School, winding around the school parking lot, track field, and adjacent orchards where the trail emerges onto a lovely single track with magnificent ocean views. A steady climb and switchbacks will take you up Franklin Canyon with numerous vistas along the way. From single-track, you run on a dirt road alongside several ranches, well-developed coastal scrub, and mixed chaparral.

The 4.0-mile course is an out and back, turning at the end of the single-track trail. The 10.0-mile course is also an out and back but continues on a dirt road towards the top of the hillside to the beginning of the Los Padres National Forest single-track trail. The 16-mile course continues up through the Los Padres National Forest on a historic single track to the crest of the Santa Ynez Mountains then turns back to the high school. the 20-mile is double the 10-mile.
