BACKBONE TRAIL HIKE #2: Big Sycamore Canyon to Triunfo Pass (Saturday Series).

The newly completed Backbone Trail winds 67 miles through the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The second section hike goes from Sycamore Canyon Campground day use parking area, where we walk up Sycamore Canyon, among oak, sycamore and walnut trees to Danielson Ranch, and then ascend Sandstone Peak via the Blue Canyon and Chamberlain trails, before ending at the Yerba Buena trailhead. Sandstone Peak is the highest point in the national park, and has incredible views in every direction.

A note from the administrator: This is where it starts. Our hikes and service volunteer work engage people who typically return to the club to do more to help the environment. MeetUp is not free, but not too expensive so a small donation here helps keep that dynamic going. FInd the 'Chip In' button and use it if you're able. Every dollar works and goes to Sierra Club! THANK YOU VERY MUCH and glad to have you here on meetup.

How to find us:Meet in the Dirt Parking Lot to set up car shuttle, this lot has 2 names (Yerba Buena or Mishe Mokwa)
