Details

Are we not men?

Hey Hey we're the Monkees!

which means we will hike and climb rocks, and explore caves and tunnels through the peaks near Chatsworth

There will be stops at 4 Different rock play areas....and no ropes are required

PLEASE BE ON TIME! I will give ten minutes grace period, and then we go!

11:10am: first we start at the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park, play and eat lunch on Picnic Rock, and then we climb the Stagecoach trail. We continue to the Rocky Peak trail, hike up past the Rock House, and down the Hummingbird trail to a 500 foot cave tunnel!!!! It is super cool, that's why it's the last on the agenda (I like to build up to a climax) (This is an out and back hike, 5 hours or so, depending on how long we play at the caves.)
