This energetic group of Village Hikers meets on the second Friday. They have hiked the trails of Monrovia Canyon Park up to the waterfalls, Cherry Canyon Trails, Santa Clarita Woodland Reserve, Chantry Flats, and the forest trail along the summit of Mt. Wilson.
The hike is on the Haines Canyon Mountain Way in Tujunga. Although classified as a moderate hike, it might be considered slightly more challenging for some. It is an in-and-out hike of 5.25 miles, with turnaround options at any point. At the 1.5 and 2.6 mile mark there are impressive vistas. The trail is unshaded, perfect for the winter weather, and has no streams or rocky outcroppings to traverse, but it is consistently upward with a 1350 foot elevation gain.
Please bring hat, water, sturdy boots, snacks, and hiking poles, if needed.
We will meet in the PV parking lot and carpool 25 minutes to the trailhead. Expect to depart from the parking lot before 8:00 to ensure we have an 8:30 hike start time. When registering, please note whether you're willing to drive other Villagers. GPS location information will be given to carpool drivers on the day of the hike.
