The Santa Clarita Community Hiking Club will hold a hike Saturday, June 11, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
The “Beat the Heat at Mentryville 4 Mile Lollypop Loop up via Johnson Park” hike covers about four miles with a 580-foot ascent.
Considering the temperature this weekend, the hiking club is going to make this a short hike to ensure the safety of all hikers. Water, good thread and poles are highly recommended for this hike.
The hike starts in the old oil town of Mentryville, followed by a gradual climb on a paved road, until the hike reaches Johnson Park where the group will ascend up the Johnson Park Trail.
Hikers should see views of wind caves and some rock formations until the hike reaches the Pico Canyon Service road.
Hikers will then descend back down the service road where hikers can see some examples of tiny anticlines and Well #4. The hike continues downhill until it concludes back at the parking lot.
