San Francisquito Canyon South via Pacific Crest Trail

Hello Fellow Hikers,
Okay who is having PCT withdraws? This trail is rated high on AllTrails and not a very populated trail either. A lot of solitude and backcountry mountains. The starting point of this trail will have the most incline with most of the trail being more of a easier moderate hike. only a few gradual inclines. Will be hiking passed the Bob Kimmerly Memorial Bench. Bob Kimmerly was the brainchild of a 50K and 50-mile trail run called the Leona Divide 50. He passed away from cancer in 1992 before it came to fruition, so others brought the race to reality and created this bench to honor him. This area is known for a lot of snow during the winter season and hot during the summer. So right now is a good time to hit this trail. Carpooling at our same meetup spot will be offered for anyone who wishes to carpool or follow to the trailhead (Best donuts located 2325 Kuehner Dr # 127 Simi Valley off the 118 freeway at 8:00 am) I have attached the AllTrails link for directions, pics, and stats….

And last….The Organizer, Co Organizer, Assistant Organizers and Event hosts in this group are not professional guides. The function of the Organizer is only to organize the trip. Each person who signs up for an Event is responsible for his or her own safety and the safety of his or her guest. Remember this is your hike. All responsibilities are of your own once you attend. Please be aware of your limit. During outdoor activity you can encounter bodily injury, snake bites, sunburn, overheating, etc. This is not within our control and we ask that you are prepared for any of the above once you sign up for an Event. If you need to take several breaks (not counting quick breather breaks) and stops throughout a hike, the hike maybe too much for your ability. Please check each event for miles, elevation gain, and difficulty rating. The higher the elevation gain means more incline and less leveled off sections. We offer all levels of hikes from moderate to hard to advanced only. We encourage everyone to not give up work on your core by joining our easier moderate Events and then joining our harder hikes once you are ready. 😊
