Hart Park Moderate Conditioning Hike: 5 miles at 5 pm

Join us 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 1300 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!)

    Thanks Bill for showing us a different route over the same area. The view was different because we saw the other side! :-)

    It was good to see everyone! And Jan Gillespie, thanks for the hand delivery of your new book on the geology of Cottonwood Canyon, North to South AND South to North! This is just the type of book to help me understand geologic forces and how they have shaped the landscape, thank you!
