Great hike on Sunday!!! We had some new hikers as well as some advanced hikers and hikers training for Mt. Whitney…
This week, we are heading to the lush and mostly shaded Santa Anita Canyon for a hike to Mt. Zion and an optional shorter hike to St…urtevant Falls.
Also, just a reminder that the address to the potluck will be given at the start of this hike… if you are planning to attend the potluck, but not the hike, send a msg. to Tony P. D. with your request.
Date and Time: Sunday, April 15, 2012, 7:00 AM sharp!!
Mt. Zion: Option #1: 9.5 miles roundtrip with 2,000′ elevation gain/loss
Hiking Difficulty: Level 3 (details)
Sturtevant Falls: Option #2: (Easy) 3.7 miles roundtrip with 700′ elevation gain/loss
Hiking Difficulty: Level 1 (details)
Meeting Location for both hike options: Chantry Flats Recreation Area
From the 210 freeway, exit at Santa Anita and continue North on Santa Anita about 4.8 miles (it becomes a winding mountain road that ends at the parking lot). Meet at the gate on the descending road next to the bathrooms. Come early as parking can be a challenge as it gets later.
