Post hike lunch at Maria’s Italian Kitchen in El Camino shopping center at 23331 Mulholland Dr. Its to the left of Wells Fargo. The corkage fee is only $10.00, so bring your own wine and save a few bucks
During lunch there will be a drawing for some prizes including a backpack and Hydroflask knock-off. You must attend the hike to win (but not the lunch)
We’ll be hiking through uncharted meadows….
…some optional rock climbing….
….meandering between trees and bushes….
Nothing like a cold shower under the weeping rock
Perhaps there will be time to visit the VIP Clubhouse
We will be hiking off-trail and may require some bushwhacking and poison oak avoidance. Wear long pants good hiking shoes. Hike is about 5.5 miles with a little over 1,000 ft elevation gain. Expect the unexpected.
