wind cave hike and hot springs tub soak

Hike Leader: Fearless leader Jose   Ok these pics are really how this place looks like. Now before you hit the yes button read this: THIS PLACE IS FAR AWAY, I mean far away. So that is why you probably never heard of this place. Next you better not be afraid  of heights. As you probably can tell by the pictures. the trails are perfectly safe and fun, just a little steep. Don't worry there are no "crap i'm going to die !" parts of the hike. Just some boulder hopping and scrambling. Also the only shade on this hike is in the caves. If it is a hot day, we are going to suffer. Well after the suffering we will do another little hike a couple a miles away to a hot springs, where we will soak the pains from the earlier hike away. BTW if something happens to you, not my fault you were dumb enough to come with me.   When: Sept 29 ,[masked]:30am   where: It is two hours away from griffith park ranger station. So we will meet there and carpool up. Then I will give you guys the directions there. So be prepared to drive four hours round trip this day. So basically be prepared to come back at night.   What to bring: Lunch, HIKING SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!! swimsuit if going in the hot tub, water water water water, hat, anything you think you might need for the day trip. 2 dollars parking fee   Hike level: medium 650 feet for the cave, 400 feet for the hot springs, 2.5 miles for the caves, 1.5 miles rt for the hot springs.   Hike description: CAVES first we go down an asfault road and take a trail up to the caves. The trail is steep at times and we will rock hop a couple of times. There are two sets of caves the lower and the upper. Anyone can do lower caves and the upper caves are little higher  and harder to get to, but if you don't want to get up there you can wait at the lower caves.  HOT springs: we get back in the cars and drive a couple of miles to the next hike. The bad news is that the hot springs parking lot requires a 2 dollar fee. We go up a dirt road and then a trail up to the hot springs. The hike is pretty easy there. you can do it in sandals. The only problem is the poison oak. You will have some fun doing the limbo and other funny moves avoiding it   Email me if you have questions   Rain cancels, No waitlists wait til someone drops and take their place.   fearless leader Jose

      September 27, 2013

    • Jeff

      Yes, Annie. Tell me where to meet and pick you and any other folks up. I've never been to Griffin Park and am not sure about the parking there / and if we're encouraged to carpool early on. Thanks. My email is: [masked].

      September 27, 2013

  • Rob

    I might have to cut short the hot springs part of the hike and get back a little early.
    Anyone interested in the possibility of skipping the springs or just doing a quick dip and heading back?

    I'm heading out of Monrovia but can pick people up at the Ranger Station.

    September 26, 2013

    • Craig

      I might be interested. Let's connect. Messaging you now.

    Jose, wish I could join you all, but something has just come up that will keep me in LA this Sunday. Enjoy the cave and springs and post lots of photos!! I hereby leave my spot open to someone on the waitlist, but shall join you for the next great adventure! -Ethan

  • Hanna

    Jose, I want to so this but I AM Afraid of heights. I can rock climb up and down as long as I can find the rocks and the holes. Let me know if this is something I could do?? Thanks!

    September 26, 2013

    • jose

      Ha i have seen you have done bridge to nowhere, if you can do that, you can do this, worse case you turn back and wait at the lower caves. even the weakest of the weak sissies can do the lower caves. upper caves are harder, but if you did the bridge to nowhere you can do this.

    Will we organize the carpooling at the ranger station? I would like to ride with someone. My car runs on 2 AA batteries.

    September 23, 2013

    • Estellaleigh F.

      It seems that way. I certainly hope someone will let me ride with them. My car has an engine instead of batteries, but that engine has a check engine light that's desperately blinking for attention but is going to have to wait until payday. No way I'm driving further I can get home on a metro bus.

      September 23, 2013

    • Rimona

      Hello. I sent you a message Monday with my phone number offering you a ride, but something came up and I will not go. I am so sorry.

      September 25, 2013

  • Paul G.

    Due to vision issues, I have to be very careful of where I drive and when I drive. Hopefully I can ride with someone from the meeting point and of course help with gas.

    How windy is the wind cave? I'm thinking about bringing a DSLR camera and a tripod. Is the wind strong enough to knock them down?

      I'm hoping for another kayaking event, Jose!!!!!!

      September 10, 2013

    Jose, I just want to confirm that the hotsprings is NOT Deep Creek in Hesperia. I can't think of another place that can hold so many people and that you pay for parking... I LOVE hotsprings and would love to learn of a new hot spot!! So if it's one I have not visited yet -- Waahoo!!

    Is the hot springs hike on the same hike or do we have to get back in our cars and drive to another location? Anyone know?

    September 4, 2013

    • jose

      Please read the writeup above. Anyways we get back in the cars and drive a couple of miles to the hot springs hike

      September 4, 2013

  • Chris S.

    Jose is this place South or North from Griffith Park??

    September 4, 2013

      September 4, 2013

  • Estellaleigh F.

    I'm happy to pitch in for gasoline to be included in someone's carpool. I try not to take my car further than I can take public transportation home if it gets cranky. Thanks! E

  • jose

    mid 90's and place is secret because I don't want this place to get too crowded. but it is 2 hour drive to get there and two hours to get back.

    September 3, 2013

    • jose

      Oops forgot to say thanks for the welcome back

  • Katherine

    are we carpooling from the park? how hot could it get hiking without any shaded areas?

    September 4, 2013

    • jose

      Once again Jose had no idea this many people would want to go. I thought since this place is so far, I would get only 30 something and only 15 would show up. Damm this filled in 12 hours, thank god I put rsvp limit

      September 4, 2013

    • jose

      damm have send an email to everybody that carpooling is mandatory with this many people and limited parking at the trailheads
