Sunday May 12th
On this hike we will follow an ancient Chumash Indian trail along Chorro Grande Creek up into the pine trees until we reach the springs. This Chumash camping site was sacred to the Indians and the springs actually bubble out from under a massive boulder. We’ll have a bite to eat here and head back down . On the way back we will detour to check out some Chumash carvings and go down to Chorro Grande Falls where the Chumash had a camp site located under the water fall. We’ll rest a bit in the shade and you might want to go for a swim in the pool beneath the falls.
Our hike begins @ 3,500 ft. elevation and the Chorro Grande Springs are @ 6,400 so we have a bit of climbing to do. Distance wise it is only 4 miles from the bottom to the top, so 8 miles total round trip.
We will meet at Nordhoff High parking lot at 8:00am and car pool to the trail head. Driving time is approx 40 minutes. Plan on being gone at least 5 hours.
Things you will need for this hike:
