Six Mile Run Park

Six Mile Run Park

I’ve come at this natural wonder so many times and still have countless stones to turn. Known far and wide for its epic mountain biking trails, Six Mile Run is a mecca for hiking and horseback riding as well. Some of the red clay paths are so packed and well-worn that they feel more like luge runs – and yet surprises are sprinkled in everywhere: an unexpected square clearing, an arched bridge, an endless boardwalk, a squiggly path so accordioned it bends time and space.

There are over half a dozen entry points to this swirling current of wonder. It doesn’t really matter where you jump in, but I think Jacques Lane is a good place to start.

AS A WINE….

Rogue and rugged but also classically beautiful, dense, enigmatic and ever lasting – this is a cult California Cab.
