CANCELLED due to Trail Conditions: Early Morning Advanced Hike: Whiting Wilderness Park

Join us on this early morning advanced hike in OCParks’ Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park. This hike involves steep climbs and descents on a variety of trails, both double and singletrack, and is done at an average moving pace of 3 – 3.5 mph. Though challenging, we are rewarded with canopied woodlands, sweeping views, and possible wildlife sightings. Please come prepared with a daypack, 70 oz. (2 quarts) of water, trail snacks, closed-toe hiking shoes, sunscreen, first aid, and any other supplies needed to keep you safe on the trail. Each participant must carry his or her own pack and water. Under-prepared participants may be denied access to this program.
