Saturday, February 26- Manzanita Trail-This is a great trail with 2,000 ft gain. All the gain is at the beginning of the hike up to the ridge on a trail/firebreak. This is a 10/12 mile hike. After the steep portion of the trail, you will reach an old road with good conditions for remainder of the hike. Bring lots of water, lunch, snacks! You will be eating lunch at the top of Wilson Saddle or Camp 9 before descending down Los Pinetos, and then we'll take the Canyon Trail back to Placerita. Meet at Placerita Nature Center at 8:15 AM for an 8:30 AM departure.

When you enter Placerita Natural Area, park in the parking lot on the right side. This is where the bridge is located. See you on the bridge at 8:15!

Poles are useful for this hike, as are good boots with treat! Be prepared with plenty of water!
