July 2-Lockwood Valley Boy Scout Camp to Sheep Camp. This is a great hike for members looking for both a strenuous or moderate hike. Choose 13 1/2 miles with 3000'gain or for a moderate hike, 7 1/2 miles with 1000' gain. The trail starts at the end of Boy Scout Camp road. We hike on a dirt road to a 45' waterfall. On the way we will take a side trail (3/4 mile) to view the hoodoo's of Frazier Park. The dirt road turns into a trail at the waterfall and will lead us to Lilly Meadows. For those looking for a moderate hike this would be a good spot to turn around. Return from this point is on your own. From Lilly Meadows to Sheep Camp is another 3 miles the last 2 are uphill. The beauty of this portion of the hike is the forest, views, and wild flowers. At Sheep Camp there is a small spring and views. We will return the same way we came. Bring your camera, lots of water, lunch, snacks, and wear shoes with lots of tread. Poles are helpful if you have them. Wear sunscreen and a hat as well. A mosquito net is recommended for the last 2 miles of the hike.

Meet at Towsley Canyon at 06:45 for a 06:55 car pool.
