Chorro Grande Falls with goojai.com
Date: Saturday, November 19th
On this hike we will follow an ancient Chumash Indian trail along Chorro Grande Creek. Along the way we will explore the Fossil Creek Trail. This secret trail follows an ancient riverbed that is filled with fossils from several million years ago when this area was under the ocean. We will also visit an old Chumash camping site that is located beneath the cliffs next to the waterfall. At the base of the waterfall is a pool that was used as a cistern to hold water in the dry months. Please join us on this adventure!
