Please join me for this annual event. Hike for Mental Health is a non-profit organization that raises 80% of funds for mental health awareness and 20% for trail maintenance. We will be hiking either 5 miles to the seasonal waterfall or 9 miles to the Los Pinetos Saddle. Both groups will start out on the canyon trail for the first two miles before the group splits. This hike is a fundraising event, but feel free to show up as just a participant and throw in some cash/ loose change as you are so inclined. There will be a bbq/potuck celebration at the end, so please stick around if you can and bring a side dish to share. Meet at the Placerita Nature Center at 19152 Placerita Canyon Road in Newhall at 7:45 a.m., ready to hike at 8 a.m. Bring plenty of water, and snacks for the longer hike, and definitely bring bug spray. PLEASE ALSO REGISTER AS A HIKER USING THIS LINK. THANK YOU.
