This hike will suit you if have an adventurous spirit and are open for anything.
We're going exploring in Oak Park. This is the kind of hike I like best--looking for the best route, making connections for the first time, doing a hike I've never done before, or perhaps only once.
Trailblazing? Exploratory? Bushwacking? Type of Hike? Terrain? Leader's choice, won't know until we get there.
No "no shows." Do not sign up if you've been a "no show" at any Meetup or your RSVP will be changed to a "no."
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 12:45PM so if you get lost or there's traffic, you'll still be on time.If you're lacing up your boots at 1:00PM, we'll be gone.
Meeting Place in Oak Park (near Thousand Oaks): Will be sent to participants by day before hike.
Estimated Stats: 6-8 miles/900' - 1,500'.
Pace: Moderate, about 2.5mph overall average. Participants stay behind the leader and group stays together. No one is left behind.
Bring: Snacks, water, first aid kit, gloves (garden gloves fine), layers, trekking poles if you have them; there could be steep sections. We return before dark, but for afternoon hikes you should always bring a headlamp or at the very least, a flashlight.
Wear: Layers, your hiking shoes/boots with the best 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.
