Hart Park Moderate Conditioning Hike: 5 miles at 5:30 pm

Join us for a late afternoon conditioning hike, finishing in evening twilight and providing unobstructed views of the Bakersfield sunset.  This will be the last 5:30 start time for this summer.  Weather is predicted well within the comfort zone for the 20th, in 80's, so I am sticking with this time.  Bring  water and sun protection!

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!)

    I am looking forward to the conditioning hike. I wonder what it is going to be like.

      Hi Jim, It should be a nice cool day tomorrow, 73 predicted. Still you might want to get in the habit of bringing at least one 500ml bottle of water. This is a fun workout, 5 miles of roller coaster type hills with overall gain of 1300 feet.
