California Central Coast - Ray Miller Trail

Hello ladies! I’m Caroline and I’m an ambassador for GWH Central Coast. I will be hosting this hike to the Ray Miller Trail in Point Mugu.

*This is a turtle hike, we will go slow and take as many breaks as needed. We will hike as ONE group. This will be a great hike for those just getting into hiking or those who hike at a slower pace. Minimal conditioning required. 

This out and back trail starts out fairly flat for .25 mile before reaching a steady incline for approximately 1 mile and then leveling out again shortly before the waterfall. After a break, we will continue beyond the falls where we will need to complete an easy climb/crawl approximately 10 feet up a dirt/rock section before reaching another level section of trail. This section of the trail is much less trafficked and winds through the canyon along the creek for another .3 miles. There are a few creek crossings above the falls but they are over shallow water and are easy, requiring either stepping completely over the creek, stepping on a few rocks, or walking over tree branches and 2x4's.

No special hiking gear is required for this event, regular shoes with a bit of grip will work fine. I do suggest a hat as this hike is completely exposed before the falls, it is well shaded after. Please bring water, and a snack if you'd like!

Hello Everyone! 

For March’s event, I figured we could change up our terrain and go for a hike that involves some light bouldering and a waterfall! This hike borders both Riverside and Orange County and is based out of Silverado, CA (about an hour-ish from Riverside, depending on time of day).

Normally when there isn’t much rain, the waterfall is just a trickle, but this year’s rain means we have a much better chance of getting some water action going on! The hike starts off on a fire road for a few miles and turns off on a trail that takes us over some boulders back into the canyon. Black Star Canyon is a personal favorite as it was one of the first hikes I had EVER hiked a few years back. 

Please be aware poison ivy tends to grow along this trail, so sleeves/long pants are recommended (layer in case it gets too warm). There is light bouldering involved with this hike, meaning we WILL be crawling over rocks to get to the waterfall (please remember this when picking out your boots for the hike). While I do see people in Nikes or the likes on this trail, it will be slippery this time of year and any extra grip helps. (I have had a friend slip on this trail). I hike at a moderate speed to lead the pack but am a “no hiker left behind” type girl and constantly check in to make sure I have everyone in my group together. 

I look forward to seeing all your friendly faces there, please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions! I will do my best to cover any and all questions you ladies have.

California Central Coast - Anniversary Hike to Two Trees

Hello ladies! Join us as we celebrate Girls Who Hike Central Coast chapter’s anniversary with a potluck hike to Two Trees and Barlow Canyon in Ventura. The hike will be co-hosted by GWHCC Ambassadors Susan Adamich and Caroline Paras and led by Rancho Ventura Conservation Trust administrators. In addition to the hike, chapter members are encouraged to bring a snack to share, and a towel or small pad for sitting on the ground.

Two Trees, one of the most iconic landmarks in Ventura, is on private agricultural land under the stewardship of Rancho Ventura Conservation Trust. Rancho Ventura is regularly open to the public for organized group hiking to Two Trees. GWHCC will be receiving an exclusive guided hike to Two Trees and then into the backcountry of Barlow Canyon by Mike Lydon, the Ranch Ventura Naturalist; Spencer Noren, the Rancho Ventura Community Outreach director, and Bonnie Atmore, the visionary and co-owner of the Rancho Ventura Conservation Trust property with her husband Richard Atmore. 

During this ladies-only meetup, our chapter members will get to visit the permanently preserved land in the Ventura Hillsides, take in incredible views overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands and the cities of Ventura and Oxnard, and the Los Padres National Forest and Topa Topa Mountains to the North and Santa Monica Mountains to the Southeast. There will be incredible photo opportunities due to the great visibility in the Fall and Winter months. Hike leaders will teach the story of the land, History of Two Trees, facts about wildlife and more during the hike. 

This hike is open to all levels of hikers. The first trek of the hike will take us to Two Trees which is 2 miles round trip. If you decide to continue on, we will hike into Barlow Canyon, which will be 4.5 miles roundtrip.

Girls Who Hike was founded in 2015. The Central Coast chapter was founded March 6, 2017.
