Bohna Peak Sunday Afternoon Hike

  • Apr 14, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

BOHNA PEAK FEATURES DENSE TREES! 


 


Hiking Category:

This hike is easily accessible from Bakersfield. It is short but EPIC strenuous in places due to the intense elevation gain. There is a brief class 1 section at the beginning, and then it turns into class 2 as we hike towards the summit. The whole hike is 3.8 miles with an elevation gain of 1975 feet. Though it is not always easy to predict, this hike should not take more than 4 hours.

Directions:

We are meeting at the Cedar Creek Campground at 1:00PM [masked], [masked]).   Click here for more directions and information. You can also use Google Maps (1. Copy and paste the coordinates into the search bar. 2. Click on directions. 3. Type in your address ). It will give you directions from your home to the trailhead. If you haven't been there before then be sure to allow some extra time to locate it.

BOHNA PEAK WEATHER

 


Hiking Plan:

We are meeting at the campground, and then heading northeast along the creek for about a quarter mile. If we are lucky then the ladybugs will be out by the millions near the creek, and that is interesting to see and photograph. After that we begin walking northeast up the side of Bohna Peak (6788'). The elevation gain in this section is very intense, so be prepared and bring lots of water as it may be hot. The trees are also very dense in this section, and the undergrowth can be high in places so wear gaiters if you have them. We will stay together, and maintain an easy pace with frequent breaks. In a short time we will reach the summit of Bohna Peak [masked], [masked]). We will probably sit around for awhile, and then make our way back down which takes a surprisingly short period of time.

Class What?

It is important that we all understand the rating system that organizers use on their hikes. For my hikes I generally use something close to the Yosemite Decimal System. I have seen many different versions of this system, and many are adamant that their version is the right version and etc.. The best description I have seen of the five classes that seems to encompass the most general idea may be found at Climber.org under ‘Five Classes of Climbing Difficulty’ ( click here ).
