Palm Springs Indian Canyon/ West Fork Trail 10-12 miles 2500' gain Advanced

We'll be driving up early Saturday & then head down to Palm Canyons..
We are doing The West Fork to Andreas Canyon which is around 6 hours 2,500' gain. This trail is steep & strenous going through a wide variety of terrain taking you high above Palm Springs, then descending to the lower slopes & several stream crossings back down joining Murray Canyon trail to the parking lot.

From here we'll do the short Andreas Canyon, a 1.5 mile loop. If you've never been here before, then you should really do this part. This is where all the giant palms & streams are!

This will be a short car shuttle involved.

No Plus ones & you must be a member of the club unless approved.

Meetup place: We will meet in front of the tollbooth. You need exact change at the toll booth. $8.00 or $9.00 per person! This is an all day event.

    Sure Bob. where do you live? I am carpooling with Bert and he is meeting me at my house, but we could swing by the Orange Park and Ride if that is easier.

      Hi Bert, I think leaving around 5:30/ 5:45 should give us enough time. Google maps says 1:48 minutes from my house. I sent you an e-mail with my cell #

      Bob, I just realized I double booked on Saturday. I really wanted to look down Palm springs but actually 10-12 miles is a bit strenuous for me. Thank you again!
