Fall Festival

October 5-6, 2013

Sierra Club, Angeles Chapter Hundred Peaks Section (http://angeles.sierraclub.org/hps/)

Come out to the Big Bear/north San Gorgonio area for 2013's Fall Festival to bag peaks, mingle with friends, and have a great time. Each fall, HPS coordinates a number of hikes in a selected area over a weekend and reserves a campground. Saturday night, we've reserved a group site at the Council Group Campground (near Barton Flats off the Rim of the World Drive). We'll have a potluck smorgasbord and lots of food and laughs. Go to the Sierra Club’s Hundred Peaks Section website to get contact information for leaders of specific hikes to get details on their outings. http://angeles.sierraclub.org/hps/outings.asp

Reservations at the campground are first come, first served--please contact Christine Soskins (csoskins@gmail.com) to secure your campground spot. Don’t forget to contact hike leaders to find out meeting time and location. See website above.
