2017 The Sequoia

  • Sun, June 04, 2017
  • 6:00 AM
  • Foothill College, Los Altos Hills, CA
  • 503


  • The 100 mile has 6 additions/extensions but if you trim off any one of them, you'll fall below the prestigious 10,000 ft elevation gain bar. This route will be a test of both body and mind, but the rewards will be yours to keep for years! 7 rest stops provided.
  • The 72 mile is a classic loop, with all the beautiful coast-side scenery, the fun climbs and descents and no options to cut any corners. 6 rest stops provided. The two longer routes both return over the beautiful Tunitas Creek climb and enjoy the Kings Mtn. Rd descent before returning back to the start at Foothill College!
  • The 64 mile travels west to San Gregorio, south to Pescadero, then east into the cool Redwoods. New this year! After a new 4th rest stop location, you'll travel 5.5 miles of hard pack gravel road closed to cars! Then a very rewarding yet challenging ascent out of Portola Redwoods SP, back over Skyline and descend Page Mill and Altamont back to Foothill. Recommend for skilled riders with good brakes and low gears and without skinny tires. (28's+ should be fine)
  • The 49 mile returns back over Skyline after La Honda to a new stop in Portola Valley then ascends into Upper Alpine canyon before returning to Foothill and a NEW fun finish line gathering! 3 rest stops provided. Green RouteArrows.
  • You have registered for a Volunteer job and received the password for your free Sequoia registration.


Sunday, June 4

All four routes ascend Moody to Page Mill Rd, continue up and over Skyline, descend West Alpine changing from open ridges to deep redwoods, and then out to our famous La Honda Rest Stop. You'll travel past lush valleys with farms and ranches and quiet coast-side towns overlooking the blue Pacific.  After La Honda, the routes diverge.  All routes are challenging and beautiful.  

Routes UPDATE: 
As of early April, the 44 mile route has been rerouted due to a road closure. Now we offer a beautiful and challenging 49 mile route with a bit more total climbing but less per mile and an easier return leg!

Registrations may be paid online by PayPal, Visa or MasterCard or by mail in check.
