Looking to start on your New Years resolution? Looking to keep your resolution rolling? Join us for the Mount Zion Loop, aka the San Gabriels Trail Sampler. The Loop (which we will be doing counterclockwise) covers four trails in the Angeles National Forest, in the shadow of Mount Wilson: the Gabrielino, Sturtevant, Mount Zion and Lower Winter Creek Trails. 9.5 miles R/T, 2250ft elevation gain. We will summit, then eat lunch at the junction below the summit.
Bring 2 liters water, sun protection and layers, Forest Adventure Pass, lunch and snack, money for optional dinner after the hike. Trekking poles and hiking boots with ankle support highly recommended for some steep parts going up and down.
Meet at 7:15AM at the North OC Rideshare Point (2721 N. Tustin St, Orange) or 8:30AM at the lower bathroom at the Chantry Flats trailhead.
Leaders: Nate Unrath and Joanna Slusarz
