Level: Intermediate

Time: 2-3 hours

Journey to a discovery location not known to the common people. An almost fantasy spot that inspires the imagination as if you were in the land of OZ.

Insiders have said that when Big Foot visits southern California, this is his hangout.

Meet at Parking Lot #2 near the Merry Go Round. The map link above shows you the correct address of nearby Ranger Station which is the closest address....but the visual is not good. If you use GPS you should be OK. From the Ranger Station you turn up the hill following the signs to parking lot #1, and continue driving through - past the Merry Go Round - to Parking Lot #2.

READ THIS - those who don't know the way. And put away that cell phone and get on your computer to read these instructions. Too many people get lost because the cellphone apps are not adequate.

Here is a map link giving you a visual

We will hike to other locations as well.

Note: We will be leaving approximately at 9:00A.M. So please try to be there at 8:45A.M. If you are not familiar with the park or haven't been to Lot#2, then please give yourself extra time to find it and get there on time!
