Haskell Canyon

Saturday, June 29

Easy Hike through Haskell Canyon

There are 526 acres of new open space in Haskell Canyon to explore. This property contains an abundance of coastal sage scrub, oak woodlands and many threatened and endangered habitat and species. The land has steep hillsides and low valleys and contains a natural intermittent stream that runs through it. It borders the Angeles National Forest to the north. The hike trail is approximately 3 miles long. We will head up the canyon winding along a narrow trail on a slight incline. Around the 1 mile marker we climb up out of the canyon, up a steep but short climb. From there we wind around the
ridge of the hills on a power line road. There are great views of
Saugus and Bouquet Canyon. We end the loop by heading back down the
hill to our cars. This is a great short hike right in the neighborhood.

There is no shade. Wear protection from the sun and bring lots of water and snacks.

Meet at the trailhead at 7:00 to sign in. Hike will depart at 7:15.

    It is going to be HOT on Saturday. Please see below for Dianne's suggestions. Bring PLENTY of water (a MUST) and electrolyte drinks (if you want). Hats and sunscreen, snacks will be helpful..... We should be done before it gets beastly hot.

    This is a very dry area with virtually no shade. Make sure you are protected with sunscreen/hat, etc. The rattlesnakes are also out for summer, so make sure you stay in the middle of the trail behind the hike leader!! If she sees a snake, she will point it out to you!
