Hiking the Santa Ynez Falls on November 20th

Hello Everyone,

With the recent success of our events during Eco-Fest, we have decided to plan another hike before the end of the semester on November 20th, 2011. Like before we will be meeting in lot 1 at CSULB to set up carpools at 8am and we will be leaving promptly at 8:30am. I have attached the description of the trail, note that the trail is an out-and-back type hike, about 6 miles and could take potentially around 4-5 hours to complete depending on how large our group is. Below are the directions and the trail description, taken from localhikes.com

Summary: This is a great hike into the dense and somewhat wild Santa Ynez Canyon. Just as you begin to descend the Santa Ynez trail, look to the left at a grassy knoll. Its not unusual to see deer feeding. A little further down the trail are some neat sandstone formations you can climb up on for a dramatic view of the mountains and ocean.

The last couple of hundred yards to the waterfall requires some climbing over boulders and one large slippery boulder has a rope to help you over. Once at the waterfall, the brave of heart can climb up a step face, with the assistance of a rope left in place, to get to the top of the falls. The shear walls of the deep cut canyon are quite spectacular.

Trailhead: From Topanga Canyon Boulevard, turn east on Entrada Road; that's to the left if you are coming from the San Fernando Valley. Follow Entrada Road by turning left at every opportunity until you arrive at Topanga State Park. The trailhead is at the end of the parking lot. (Lat:34.0928 Lon:-118.58707)

Thank you, hope to see you guys there!
