This page will serve as the gateway to the table of quick links to the 4 segment maps at the top, and segment sub-pages, labeled A – D, describing all 4 segments in detail below the quick links. This page has segment stats, and finisher tables. Additionally, there is a Facebook photo album entitled, Long Beach Loop Summary, showing the overall Google route map, summary table, the GPS tracks of all 4 of the segment walks, and a finishers table [which are not yet complete, until we walk all 4 segments].
How to receive website credit for completing Segments:
