Central Valley - Buck Ridge Loop

Ambassador: Rebecca

Hello, ladies! There will be a March meet-up at Hensley Lake. There is a day use fee of $5, but they also accept the America the Beautiful Pass (national parks pass). 
I've never done this hike, so all information is coming from AllTrails, the US Army Corps website, and Best Easy Day Hikes Fresno (book). 

Bring plenty of water. This hike is in early March, but it could still be warm, with little shade on the trail.
