DISTANCE: about 12 miles
UPHILL: lots of it. 1800 feet gain in 4 miles
DIFFICULTY: hard, vigorous workout. But we will stop to rest a lot, cause I like it that way. Not much shade.
We drop downhill (by 350 feet) for 2 miles on the Cistern and Lookout trails to Century Reservoir, and head up-stream on Crags Road to the MASH site... then Pose for pictures and eat a bit. Then we go up by 1800 feet on the Bulldog Motorway for 4 miles to the bitchen' rocks at the top overlooking the ocean. Then we come back the way we came.
AS USUAL: Bring 4 quarts of water, LUNCH, munchies, a hat, comfy hiking shoes, sunscreen, flashlight, Gern Blanston repellent
After hike silliness can be had at Ladyface Alehouse, located at Kanan and Agoura Road, 1 block south of the 101 freeway.
ABOVE: THE MASH SITE.
BELOW: CAVES AT TOP OF BULLDOG MOTORWAY
