If it's cool, is there really any other choice?! As usual, off we go to the wilderness north of Ojai.
Hike will always show "full" because participants are added from waitlist. Add yourself to waitlist ONLY if you've never been late, a "no show," or changed your RSVP to "no" within 48 hours of start time.
Let's get out of the hills and into the mountains!
We'll take a jaunt up to Topatopa Bluff in the Los Padres National Forest. This will be an all-day adventure hike for those up for an invigorating challenge. Suitable only for the strong, adventurous maniacs.
You should have no evening plans for this one.
I'll change hike to a beach area if severe weather conditions like wind/fire/rain or temps above 79 degrees forecast here (http://www.wunderground.com/US/CA/Ojai.html).
Time & Place: 6:30AM in Camarillo, or 7:30AM at trailhead. Destination is about 1 hour north. Directions will be emailed to participants.
Bring: The ten essentials (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Essentials). Trekking poles a plus. Headlamp, food for all day, plenty water.
Wear: Layers, hiking shoes/boots with lug soles, long pants/sleeves for heavy brush protection.
Dogs: Fine, if they're used to this level. Email me if you'd like to bring your leashed dog.
Terrain: Fireroad, single track, very brushy trails and trailblazing.
