Danielson Memorial via the Fossil Trail

September 3, 2022 @ 7:00 am

8.1 mile loop – Moderate (2,000′ of elevation gain/loss)

Meet near Donut Delite at the corner of Madera and Royal. Bring 2 to 3 quarts of water and lunch/snacks. Wear boots.

Our hike in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA) will begin by following the Wendy Trail in Newbury Park to the Satwiwa Native American Indian Culture Center at Rancho Sierra Vista. Then we’ll drop into Big Sycamore Canyon and take the Fossil Trail uphill to the Old Boney Trail which we’ll follow to the abandoned Danielson Road which will lead us to the Danielson Memorial and the remains of a cabin. As we complete our loop hike we’ll stop at a waterfall along the way.
