THE WWW’S RETURN TO (MANZANA CREEK) via FISH CREEK (EXPLORATORY)

May 29 @ 7:20 am - 4:00 pm PDT

It’s time to take advantage of the creeks again before they dry up in summer. For this event I’ll once again lead the WWW deep into the San Rafael Wilderness (Los Padres National Forest South). But, as usual, my reward for doing so will most likely be a soaking when I least expect it as I’m minding my own business of course. This time we’ll be hiking that part of Manzana Creek which is east of Sunset Valley Rd. The plan is to scramble down Fish Creek for about 3.5 miles to where it reaches Manzana Creek. From there we’ll have a 3.5 mile trail that follows the creek to where our cars are. This will be accomplished via a 4 mile car shuttle.
This area is at least a two and a half hour drive from Thousand Oaks, so keep that in mind when signing on. Devote the whole day to this and don’t sign on if you have other commitments later that day (because we won’t rush the trek so you can finish early and it’s an exploratory route). If interested in stopping off for dinner or fast food in Goleta, we can do so.

NO DOGS ALLOWED ON THIS EVENT

WARNING!!!!!!! THERE MAY BE SERIOUS WATER FIGHTS DURING THIS TREK – NO ONE IS EXEMPT FROM BEING A TARGET OF THE WWW (WEDNESDAY’S WILD WOMEN). I KNOW THAT VERY WELL, SINCE I’VE BEEN THEIR TARGET MANY TIMES. Also, if you get car sick when some one else drives, you’ll need to be one of the drivers, since this event will require 32 miles of mountain driving.
