Come on out and celebrate Halloween with a new hike this year: Tombstone Trail in Upper Las Virgenes Open Space, Calabasas. We'll do a big loop on the highest trail in the area overlooking Bell Canyon. Wonderful 360 degree views of surrounding areas.
Trailblazing? No, these trails have been trodden before.
Exploratory? Yes, somewhat. Although I've done all the trails, it's been a while, so I'll be re-finding the way. That might be the scary part!
Bushwacking? Yes, a little. The trails can be brushy.
Don't sign up if you've been a "no show" at any Meetup.
I'm bringing friends as guests, but everyone else must be signed up at this website to attend.
ESTIMATED Stats: 6.75 miles/1,700'.
Pace: Moderate, and we'll stay together as a group. No tigers or turtles.
Level: Moderate if you're used to the stats. It depends on your level of conditioning.
