This is the second hike in our Spring Hiking MB series – the classic Spruce Grove loop! Meet at the Scout House at 6 a.m. sharp. We will divide into carpools and drive to the trailhead at Chantry Flats.
Please note that this is a fairly rugged 10 mile hike – we will be gaining (and losing) about 2500 feet of elevation on this hike. A 10 mile hike is much more difficult than a 5 mile hike, so please be prepared! Bring your 10 essentials, including at least 3 liters of water. Pack a lunch and trail snacks – we will eat an early lunch on the trail.
If you would rather meet at the trailhead instead of at Scout House, you could try that – to get to Chantry Flats go east on the 210, exit at Santa Anita in Arcadia, turn left, then go 5 miles directly to Chantry Flats (the last 3 miles are on a windy mountain road). Meet us at the beginning of the trail down to Sturtevant Falls, near the entrance to the trailhead, around 6:45 a.m. – we hope to start hiking before 7. Note that paking is very limited at Chantry, you may need to park down the road, so allow time for that.
