    Noble Canyon: Extra Credit Mileage

    Does anyone know the approximate mileage from the Noble parking lot (at the bottom), up the road to where Extra Credit cuts off, then up and over Extra Credit back to the parking lot? I'm thinking of running it as part of my training. Thanks!

    PS Yes, I know I need a computer. Thank you in advance for the advice .
    PSS I also know mountain biking is way cooler than running, thanks again.

    I've never just done that loop (have seen people trail running in that area, though). My guess would be 5 miles. Maybe slightly more. I believe it's about 3-4 miles from the trailhead to the road (riding up Extra Credit, and down Whore), then add in the pavement mileage.

    Sweet. Which part is "whore"? Is that the run to the parking lot?

    It's about a 1.5 mile descent/climb that is pretty smooth. It's after all the rocks if you are riding up the trail, or will be a climb if you take the road and cut across and descend the rocks.
