Hike through the old the 1930 Murphy Ranch 8 miles plus - intermediate level Leaving the ravine we will climb up 500 stairs from the bottom "Meet at the very top of Capri Drive" for Parking see photos For those that have never heard about it, the ranch is allegedly a 1930s hideout where NAZI/Third Reich sympathizers could sequester themselves until German rule had been established in the USA The property was developed by Winona and Norman Stephens and a German national by the name of Herr Schmidt. The design implemented was an installation of several buildings, fuel tanks, and multiple massive cisterns. The entire complex, according the plans of Herr Schmidt, was to be self-sustaining even if it suffered years of isolation from the outside society The FBI raided the ranch in 1941 and that was the end of that until the 50's when an artist's colony was established. (Most of the ranch has been tore down)
