Awesome hike. Was only 5.5 miles. Waterfalls were beautiful and there was a running stream through most of the walk. Very green right now due to all the rain we've had recently.

Palomarin Trailhead to Alamere Falls

Went early-ish(11) on a weekday and didn't run in to a single person until we got down to the falls. It's a far walk, but relatively easy other than loose rocks and the steep descend down to the beach. 100% worth it. I also loved the variety in vegetation(sea cost, pine forest, lake/wetland feel). Trail was super busy as we headed back around 2:30. Definitely pack a Picnic and hang on the beach for awhile!

Sisar Canyon/Red Reef Trail

My first time hiking this trail after living in Ojai for seven years and hiking extensively the past few years. Parked at the trailhead, continued on the single track about 3 miles up and then finished at the Topa Topa summit at 7.2 miles. It was a beautiful, cool day. Perfect weather for hiking. There was a lot of snow (maybe 2 inches) the last 3/4 mile up to the Topas. The clouds had moved in, so my friend and I were unable to see the spectacular views at the top. Got really chilly up there. In the way down, saw two bears ahead of us on the trail (about 2.5 miles from our car). Made a lot of noise & they ran off. I've hiked to the top of the Topas only once before, two years ago, from Horn Canyon. That was 15 miles round trip and somewhat tougher than this. 14.4 miles round trip. Did it in just a little less than 6 hours. Tough but worth it!

C.Abrille Exploration #5 - CA

Another exploration at Cahuilla Hills this time at the second canyon. The goal was to hike all the way to the Palm Trees, as it turned out was not possible because there was a 300 feet tall dry water fall. Note you'll have to leave the trail to enter this canyon where there's no trail. Expert hikers only!

Santa Cruz Island: Pelican Bay And Prisoners Harbor Trails
by

I visited the Channel Islands in mid Feb of 2015. Decided to go to Santa Cruz and land at Prisoners so I could do the Pelican Bay Trail. The trail was only 4.5 miles, not 6 as the site suggest, but the difficulty was moderate/strenuous.

The hike itself was absolutely beautiful and our tour guide David did an absolute amazing job informing the group about the plants and wildlife. The Pelican Bay hike is inside the Nature Conservancy which requires that this hike be done with a tour guide. Getting to Pelican Bay was definitely worth the hike! We were able to stop to enjoy our lunch that we brought with us and the view.

I would highly recommend this hike. And we will definitely be back to the channel islands for some camping!

Nice local hike. Shaded for the first half of the hike with a steady incline. Last 1/2 mile gets a little more challenging. The views from the top are incredible in the winter with snow capped mountains and city views.
