There are multiple entry points and sections to the overall trail. The section which starts in Aliso Viejo at the South entrance to Wood Canyon and then goes North to Sheep Hills Park is exactly 10k. This is a straight forward 10K run on relatively flat terrain. Starting from the South Wood Canyon entrance the path is a very low uphill grade to Sheep Hills Park. At the "top" you can turn around and with the very low downhill grade have a nice negative split. The 10K distance is an out and back route.
