LATEST HIKE - 01/28/2010

I'll start off with my latest hike which was this afternoon.
I hiked the Waterfall Trail in Placerita Canyon. Placerita Canyon is in the Santa Clarita Valley of Southern California. There is a nature center there and many fun trails to hike.
During our "wet" months (January and February), there is a waterfall and a nice stream running through the canyon. We just had a 7-day rain storm last week, so there is plenty of water up there right now.
Here is a map of the Placerita Park/Nature Center. You can click on any of the photos to see a larger version of them.

The Waterfall Trail takes you on a 1.2 mile round trip through a green field where old oak groves grow. You start to climb up the hill and into the deep, narrow canyon. The trail dead-ends at the waterfall, which drops about 12 feet.
Sometimes you will see Acorn Woodpeckers in the trees, or you may even see some squirrels or deer along the way.
