Saturday Apr 2- Slide Mountain Event-Today we are hiking to the top of Slide Mountain through a burn area. This is 12 miles round trip on a steep trail. We will hike to the fire lookout on the top of the mountain. There are incredible views of Lake Pyramid and Lake Piru. You will also see a 360 degree view from the top. This is a tough hike, and beginners are not advised to try the entire trail. If you are beginning, it is suggested that you try the first couple of miles, then return to your vehicles. Adventure pass required for parking in the Angeles National Forest.

We will meet at the outside gate of Towsley Canyon at 8:15 for an 8:30 departure. We will be carpooling to the trailhead above Castaic on I-5.

Directions to Towsley: Exit I-5 at Calgrove, turn left if you're going north, right if you're going south. Go through the signal, and make a right turn into the parking area immediately after the signal.

To meet at the trail head, go north on I-5, exit Templin Hwy, turn left. Go under the freeway, and turn right. Follow this road until it ends at a white forest service gate. Park. Display your Adventure Pass in your windshield. Meet us at the gate at 8:55 (approx)
