There’s an EVEN NEWER trail (since our last hike here New Years Day) to some cool rocks at the north peak of the allegedly famous Mount Rexmore preserve.
We will take the Rose canyon loop trail to the south peak, monkey around, & drop down to the saddle trail completed last summer. Then we climb up the newest trail and explore the north peak rocks while snacking, playing guitar, doing dangerous looking stunts, or negotiating complex business deals….your choice.
Optional dinner is at the Country Deli, located at Topanga canyon and Lassen. 9901 Topanga Canyon Blvd, Chatsworth, CA 91311
WHERE TO MEET: at the Rocky Peak trailhead parking area located at the SOUTH end of the Rocky Peak offramp bridge at the 118 freeway, at the intersection with Santa Susana Pass Road.
DISTANCE: 4 miles. Difficulty: moderate. Hike is all on trails and monkeying around on the nearby rocks is optional. Elevation gain is 500 feet

All the usual meet up rules apply….we’re not responsible for anything….we’re not your mom….bla bla bla
Everyone must sign a liability waiver….yup, Damn lawyers, because this 120 acre preserve is private property, and it does not have the automatic liability immunity which public parks have.
THE USUAL STUFF:
BRING ALL THE USUAL STUFF…I’M NOT YOUR MOM….
Bring lunch, clothing (sorry, nude hikes are a different Meetup group), 3 liters of water, hat, comfy shoes, snacks, guitar, all your troubles…, camera, etc
LEGAL STUFF: by going on this hike, you agree to assume all risks of this hike, (such as poison oak and ticks), and that no one at Meetup including the organizer is responsible for your safety. See the Meetup terms of service especially paragraph 6.2:
