Elsmere to Beale’s Cut to the Elsmere Waterfall

Saturday, March 23

Elsmere to Beale’s Cut to the Elsmere Waterfall

This is an easy hike ++ almost to Moderate. It is about 8.5 miles. We will begin our upward climb to the oil relics, where we will stop for a photo op, then take a little detour to the jack crib so you can get some photos of that. Then we will continue on to Beale’s Cut where we will have a snack and relax for a few minutes before our return to the Elsmere Trail. Once returning to the Elsmere Trail, we will detour once again to see the Elsmere Waterfall where we can relax and have lunch. If we have had significant rain, it should be running for us! After seeing the waterfall, we will return to our cars! The canyon should be full of wildflowers, so bring your camera. Elsmere is home to many species, including the pink perennial giant lupine.

Bring lots of water, camera, poles if you have them, snacks, lunch.

Directions: From the I-5, take the SR-14 North. Exit at Newhall Avenue. The offramp splits to the left and right. Take the right side option. Turn right at the stop sign. Immediately ahead of you is the Park and Ride. Park here. We will meet at the MRCA green Gate/green sign promptly at 8:00 for an 8:15 departure.

Meet at 8:00 at the Park and Ride for an 8:15 departure.

Leader: Steve Iland

Rated: Easy to Moderate

    Nice hike once you get away from the freeway. Lot's of varied terrain and elevation. A few somewhat challenging hills.

    I'm coming from Bakersfield - anyone else from b-town that wants to carpool?

    I'm so sad., today my dog had to have surgery. So depending on how the rest of this week plays out with her, will depend if we make it out. Crossing fingers that we can make the hike.
