I ran Patterson Canyon yesterday, it was fabulous except for the 32 times I had to cross the creek!!! 32!
The trail up Patterson is steep for the last .75 of a mile. This picture doesn't do it justice. At one point I was going a little too fast coming down and nearly tumbled down the hill. It was too steep for me to stop! Unfortunately, there's not much of a view when you get to the crest trail from Patterson. I would have continued on until I found a view but I was very hungry and had to go home and eat.
