Hike to the "C"

We will be hiking up Box Springs Mountain using the Two Trees trail to Box Springs Mountain Park and continue to the “C”. If we choose, we may continue to the “M.”  The hike is around 3.5 miles (around seven miles round trip, without the addition) each direction with a 1200 feet elevation gain with a moderate to difficult hiking level. The path is steep in parts, dirt and uneven.  Bring extra water and enjoy the gorgeous views once you reach the top. There have been sightings of coyotes, donkeys, snakes, lizards, and rabbits on the trail. This is a hike with rugged and diverse terrain, and expansive views and interesting rock formations
From the 215/91 take 60/215 fwy eastbound: Take the Blaine Street exit, the first off ramp, turn left (turn right if traveling west on the 60/215) follow Blaine St. all the way to the end. Park in dirt lot where Blaine ends towards the left we will take a short walk to the trail head proper.

Dogs are welcome, as long as they are well-behaved, on a leash, and cleaned up after.

Considering the elevation gain, some may consider this a STRENUOUS hike, please know your limits. This hike is not for beginners. So, please be in a moderately decent shape for hiking and prepare for a good work-out.
