Are you willing to take a turn hosting a Women's Workout Hike? You don't need to attend regularly. Come along once in a while if you like. As long as you agree to host about 6 hikes a year, you can join this hike.
Be prepared on sign up to say what days you can host--Weds in August, Thurs in September. We'll have maps if necessary, and hosts may choose the route and get help with map reading. Or leave it to others to choose. We have plenty ideas where to go! Hosts don’t need experience, nor do they need to know the trails. There’s no chance of getting lost because there's always someone who knows the area. Fed up with the same old/same old trails? Then this is the perfect opportunity if you'd like to explore and find new loop or "out and back" hikes. We always like to take the road less traveled, and our emphasis is on taking the route we know the least. Trailblazing? Exploratory? Bushwacking? Type of Hike? Terrain? Leader's choice, anything possible, won't know until we get there. Be prepared for anything.
Conejo Mountain from Dos Vientos.
For the whole month of August, we'll meet at the same trailhead on Wednesdays in Newbury Park. We get cool breezes there, and it's usually about 5 degrees cooler than Thousand Oaks.
Boney Mountain Wilderness from Potrero Ridge.
Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa
Please, no guests. You must be signed up at Fun in the Sun Club Meetup, thereby agreeing to Meetup's Release of Liability (http://www.meetup.com/terms/). Don't show up without signing up here first. Thank you.
Start Time: Arrive EARLIER. It's a good idea to be there at 7:45AM so if you get lost or there's traffic, you'll still be on time. We'll leave when everyone arrives and wait until 8:00AM at the latest. If you're lacing up your boots at 8:00AM, we'll be gone.
Meeting Place: Will be sent to participants by day before hike.
Estimated Stats: 8-12 miles, 900' - 2,200'. We usually finish before 12:30PM.
Pace: We can keep a 3.0 mph moving average, and 2.5mph+ overall average--sometimes considered a brisk, but it's all relative. Participants stay behind the leader and group stays together. No one is left behind.
Bring: Snacks, 3L+ water, The ten essentials. Trekking poles if you like using them.
Wear: Layers, hiking shoes/boots with lug soles, hat, long pants/sleeves for brush protection.
Dogs: Well behaved leashed dogs welcome. Please clean up after your dog.
Leave nothing of value in your vehicle at any trailhead.
