This week we will break away from the typical Wednesday walk and hike Mars Canyon. We will start at the Achenbach Canyon parking area and hike up the canyon and once we reach the canyon ridge (see photo above) we will go south along the ridge and go to one of the lesser peaks overlooking Achenbach Canyon. We will return to the parking area through Achenbach Canyon. You will need to wear appropriate shoes and clothing to ward off all unfriendly plants that we will meet along the way. The hike will possibly be four plus hours depending on everyones thoughts as we go.
We will meet at the Achenbach Canyon parking area off of Ladera Canyon Rd. (on the east side just past the trash dumpsters). If you are unsure of the location or have a car with a lower ground clearance than a Subaru Forester I will meet you at the Sierra Vista trailhead on Soledad Canyon Rd. and you can follow or ride with me to the parking area.
Next week, we will do a different hike, which is up for suggestion during this week's hike.
Bring at least one liter of drinking water, sunscreen, snack, and of course, yourself!
See you Wednesday morning 8:00 am at trailhead!
