This is a beautiful in-and-out trail with most of the elevation gain in the first couple of miles. We will take East Canyon (only) to the top and cross to Mission Point Peak (O'Melveny Park). Stunning views of SCV and SFV on clear days. Moderate shade so bring sunscreen as needed. 
We will meet at the trail head by the metal gate, adjacent to the farm/stables on the dirt road (leading off The Old Rd.) There is plenty of free parking along The Old Road, however there is a parking lot specific for this trail (off the dirt road) for which you need to pay $5. I encourage you to park on The Old Rd as everybody does. 

***As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups***
