Park away from all stores.Leave the store parking for customers.Albertsons has a restroom,in the back ,right hand corner.If using it,purchase something,from the store.This will be an out and back hike,using Pictograph Trail,Smuggler's Canyon,and Whale Peak Trail.We will have immense boulder scrambling,going and coming back,for 1 3/4 miles and an elevation gain of 1000',in Smuggler's Canyon,so this hike is very strenuous.Long pants and gloves are recommended.Trekking poles can be used ,but they do get in the way ,when boulder scrambling.If you are a weaker/slow hiker,this hike is not for you.Stay in contact ,with each other,so nobody gets lost.Do not be the hiker in last place,we cannot wait for you.We will be hiking for 3 1/2 hours,to the summit,and 3 hours,back to the car,most of it will be strenuous.

Because we are in a wash,there is a possibility this hike may be cancelled,if rain is forecast.

8 1/2 miles and 2200' elevation gain.

From Julian and HWY 78,turn right on HWY S2,for 6 miles(just before mile marker 23).Turn left on Blair Valley Road(A brown sign says Blair Valley).We will stop there and use the restroom.For those of you,that want to meet us near trailhead,we are stopping at the Blair Valley restroom.That is 1 hour and 5 minutes from Albertsons.Passengers,be curteous,and help with the gas expense,plus,the drivers are behind the wheel,for four hours.Passengers and drivers,agree on a gas expense,before getting into the vehicle,so everyone is happy.
