Meet at the very top of the parking lot at 567 S Poli St in Ventura at 8:45. This free parking lot is behind and up the hill from San Buenaventura?Ventura City Hall at 501 So Poli St. Come early enough to find your way to the top or uppermost parking lot. Sorry no dogs and no bathrooms. The botanical garden offers a controlled collection of plants. These plants are from similar climates as Ventura such as Peru or Chile and are cultivated for study and exhibition. This is a moderately steep climb of 2 miles with a 350-foot gain.
The trail is hard or packed dirt. Wear appropriate shoes with a waffle sole, use sun protection and bring water because this will be a warm hike from 8:45 to 10:30.
The leader does not check meet up comments or tardies. Any questions will be addressed at the trail head.
