HIKE #2 IN OUR TOUR OF THE RIM OF THE VALLEY PARK SYSTEM: Easy Porter Ranch Loop Hike through Aliso Canyon and back via the Palisades (Ridgeline) Park

Followed by Easy walk to Corriganville movie ranch’s caves

WHEN: 2PM to 4:30 Sunday October 10th—for Porter Ranch loop hike, AND

5 to 6:30P PM for Corriganville hike

Difficulty: pretty easy—4.5 miles total, elevation gain 400 feet on the way up in a shady canyon, then downhill along sunny view-filled Palisades (Ridgeline) Park back to our cars/skateboards.

Followed by 1.5 mile visit to the oak grove and caves in Corriganville Park at 5pm to 6:30 PM ( a former movie ranch, lots of interpretive signs. Also, very little elevation gain except to climb the 200 foot ridge with the caves.

DIRECTIONS TO ALISO CANYON PARK FOR 2 PM HIKE:

Take the 118 freeway west of the 405 freeway to the Reseda Blvd. offramp. The ramp drops you onto Rinaldi Street—turn right and follow Rinaldi for a mile. The Aliso Canyon Park is on the left (north side). If you cross Zelzah Street, you have gone too far. Parking is on Rinaldi Street.

DIRECTIONS TO CORRIGANVILLE PARK FOR 5 PM HIKE:

Take the 118 freeway another 6 miles west of the Reseda Blvd. ramp to the Rocky Peak offramp. Turn left onto the bridge, then turn right onto Santa Susana Pass Road.
