Come enjoy a great conditioning hike with beautiful scenery featuring house-sized boulders and tall chaparral. We will take a moderate pace through challenging ups and downs on Ellie Lane trail through rocky canyon trails. We take a break on the Iron Mountain summit to enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views all the way to the ocean horizon (clarity permitting). We return to Ellie Lane parking via the Iron Mountain and Wild Horse trails. This is a hard day hike which requires going 9 miles with a climb or descend of up to 2,000 ft. This is an Official Sierra Club hike, but everyone is welcome. Wear sturdy shoes with traction, bring minimum 2 quarts of water, sun protection, and 10 essentials. Rain cancels!
