California Central Coast - Danielson Monument

Hello ladies! I’m Caroline and I’m an ambassador for GWH Central Coast. I will be hosting this hike to Danielson Monument Trail, a 6.4 mile out and back trail located near Newbury Park. Danielson Monument is a stone monument honoring Richard Danielson who donated the ranch to the National Park Service for preservation as an open space. 

This hike takes you from the Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa Recreation Area into the Boney Mountain Wilderness (Point Mugu State Park). During this time of year, there is a superbloom of wildflowers along the trail. We could also take a little detour and trek up to the waterfall.

If you are a registered member and have your punch card, don’t forget to bring it so I can initial it! If you’re not a registered member, you’re more than welcome to attend anyway! You can find out more about how to become one and get a punch card of your own here: 
I will not be handing out punch cards at this event. They’re available through purchase of a New Member Kit only. 

What to bring: Water: Bring your own water as it can be very hot and sunny on the trail. Snack: We will be taking a snack break. Ten essential: As always, it is a good idea to bring the 10 hiking essentials.
