lake anza bonanza - sixish miles depending

See comments below for better instructions to the hike starting place...

This is a gorgeous hike that follows a creek and circles Lake Anza. We'll climb at the beginning, then descend to Lake Anza, follow the creek around and then mosey through the trees/shade back to the parking lot.

Expect this hike to take 3 hours or so. We will not stop for a lunch break but the pace will be relaxed enough to snack along the way.

Hike rating: Moderate 

Hiking pace: Relaxed

We will wait 5 minutes after the posted start for latecomers.


Efforts will be made to keep the group together.  It is recommeded that you obtain a map at the begining of the hike in case the group is seperated.

Please bring snacks, water and poopie bags.
