Lights! Camera! Action!… In 1927, Paramount Pictures purchased 2,700 acres of the old Rancho Las Virgenes for use as a "movie ranch." For 25 years, a veritable who's who of Hollywood practiced their craft at Paramount Ranch including director Cecil B. Demille and actors Bob Hope, Gary Cooper and Claudette Colbert. The diverse landscape was the real star of the show. It offered film makers the freedom to create distant locales such as colonial Massachusetts inThe Maid of Salem (1937), ancient China in The Adventures of Marco Polo (1938), a South Seas island inEbb Tide (1937) and numerous western locations including San Francisco in Wells Fargo. The art of illusion was mastered on the landscape. The area is surrounded by miles of beautiful rolling tree covered single track trails, and was purchased from the National Park Services in 1982. It's the perfect staging area for an amazing trail 50k, 30k, half marathon, and 10k, and it's an event that should not be missed.
