Sunday November 11, 2012: Boney Mountain Overlook
RATING: Intermediate Plus / Advanced TRAILHEAD TIME: 9:00 A.M.
Andrea Friedman and David Moezinia will co-lead this hike of about 7.5 miles round trip with 2100 feet elevation gain. It includes some breathtaking up-close views of the shear rock faces of Boney Mountain. At a stunning overlook of Boney Mountain, you will see a bench-like rock on the trail with an unforgettable view of the rock faces, as well as views of the Oxnard Plain and Thousand Oaks. The last section of trail is very steep and it is not maintained. Poles would be very useful for the way down, but not a must.
