We are going to try for maybe our last mountain hike of the
season. This is a repeat of a hike I did in October, but it has
a lot of shade and can be shortened if we decide it is too hot
to do the entire hike. Today's hike, all on trail, will start
at mile marker 19.1 on Sunrise Highway (SR-1) We will hike on
the Old County Road for about a mile before heading off on a
bike trail to Wooded Hill. The
trail climbs moderately, but consistently until we reach the top
of Wooded Hill. We will gain almost 1000 feet in the first 2.5
miles or so. We will then head down to the Agua Dulce trailhead
for a bathroom (toilets are available) and nutrition break .
From here we will follow Los Gatos Ravine to the meadow;
passing the Tree-saurus. We will eat lunch at the Laguna
Cemetery before heading back to the Old County Road via Chico
Ravine Trail. Old Country Road, Wooded Hill, Los Gatos Ravine,
Big Laguna, Chico Ravine Loop Distance 9.7 miles
(with an option to shorten to 8 miles by returning to the
trailhead via the Big Laguna Trail from the lunch stop) with an
elevation gain of about 1300 feet. The hike
will leave the trailhead
promptly at 8:30 AM
Pack snack, lunch and water. There is no water on the trail. Forecast is sunny. It will be about 70 degrees when we leave with high of 85. We will be hiking in shade a large part of the time
Directions: From I-8 East, take the Sunrise
Highway to Mile Marker 19.1. The trailhead will be on your
left. You can park off the side of the road on either side.
There is usually a portable toilet available on the east side of
the highway, right before you reach the trailhead.
Each vehicle must display either an Adventure
Pass or a Senior Pass.
Mission Valley carpool leaves at 7:30 AM .
