Trip Report
I enjoyed this hike very much in spite of some minor problems. The weather was perfect for me, too warm for others. We kept seeing signs of bighorn sheep all day long, but no live sightings, just an old skull and horns! The lower portion of our second canyon (not counting Carrizo)Had a surprising babbling spring, which fed a several hundred foot long oasis of mesquite and rare maidenhair fern. Man! What a day, strenuous but great fun climbing all them dry waterfalls!

Event Description

A fairly strenuous and difficult hike, looping together two awesome and beautiful canyons, tributaries of Carrizo Gorge, with very steep climbing and dry waterfalls, including a 100 footer (which we'll go around, maybe !?) We'll hike down one canyon to Carrizo Gorge, down Carrizo Gorge about 3/4 mile, and up the other canyon. This hike will be about 8 miles W/2500' EL. gain/loss, not for the inexperienced or the tentative.

High clearance vehicle recommended. You should have around 4 Qts. H2O, good foot traction, your usual essentials and be ready to get those feet and body moving over hill and dale !!

Rain cancels.

Meet @ Los Coches park & ride to gather into carpools & depart from there no later than 7 AM. From interstate 8 eastbound, exit at Los Coches Road and turn right, proceed to Camino Canada & turn left, continue to P & R on left. ODC EVENT.
