Hart Park Conditioning Hike: Almost 5 miles

Join Gabe and I for a late afternoon conditioning hike, finishing in evening twilight and providing unobstructed views of the Bakersfield sunset.

We meet at the Sheriff's shooting range near the "west" entrance to Hart Park.  This one and a half hour hike is moderate because we do keep a good pace as we move up down some hills, a few which are somewhat steep and can be slippery. The total distance is about five miles with an elevation gain of around 1500 feet.  

I would not recommend this hike for anyone who is not in shape. You don't have to be in great hiking shape but you do need to have a recent history of regular cardio exercise. So, if you are looking to keep in shape and something to do, join us  at the posted start time.  A headlamp should not be needed but I always like to carry one for emergencies. 

Hope to see you out there!

We do conditioning Hikes so we can hike to places like this! 


(A place we will be going this spring break in Utah!)

    I wish I could make it but it's a bit too early for my schedule.

      Thanks for your input CamieBetween Bill and I maybe we can come up with a later conditioning hike. Though I don't dislike hiking in the dark, I enjoy it better in daylight.

      I totally understand Tony, if I could make it to the early hikes I definitely would. After school is out I'll be able to make the earlier hikes ;-)

    I have changed the location from the CALM site to our alternate Hart Park site due to popular demand.
