Weather update, all 3 website NOAA, TWC & Weather Underground have forecasted a 40% chance of showers for Sunday. I’m going to wait until tomorrows forecast before I make a decision on whether to postpone or cancel.

NOAA has the showers mainly before 10am (good thing we start at 11am) and TWC is now down 20% chance of rain so hike is on. Btw, the picnic area has wood chips scattered all over the ground so at least it wont be muddy

Hi, we are driving now and stuck in traffic. Is everyone still hiking?

Jodie, we did hike (we left the parking lot at 11:20AM) but sorry that we didn't see the message b/c we would of waited for you all. The cell service in the canyon is spotty at best.

I thought I saw you when we were pulling into the parking lot. I wasn't sure if it was you. We ended up at the lookout at the top of Mulholland Dr. About 2 1/2 hours one way. We just got back. We enjoyed sharing with each other, it was fun.

My boyfriend and I went on this hike and loved the Rain Forest Trail. We were a little late, so we never caught up with the group. We ended up going way too far, but had a great time and a great workout.

Jodi, we took a different trail from last year but I'm glad you two had a good time. We took the trail up to the Tree People off of Coldwater Canyon and stop at a picnic area that most people don't even know about.
