Join us for the second hike of the seven summits series. Each month the hikes get longer, steeper, and higher. Perfect training for summer hikes and backpacks in the Sierras or just to get into awesome hiking shape. This month: Josephine Peak (5558’). Moderately paced loop hike over a well maintained trail and fire road. Excellent views of Strawberry Peak and Big Tujunga Canyon. Short car shuttle required.
For carpooling, MEET 7:30 AM in La Canada on Angeles Crest Hwy (Hwy 2) and Milmada Dr, Just N of Foothill Fwy (I-210). This is a neighborhood street.
