The Southern Sierra Hiking Club features hiking activities all year round in local mountains and wilderness areas of Kern and Tulare Counties; featuring the Sequoia National Forest, Sequoia National Park, and the Giant Sequoia National Monument. We hike on trails, scramble, climb peaks, go cross country, snowshoe and backpack. Other areas we hike include the Tehachapi and San Emigdio Mountains, the Los Padres and Angeles National Forests, AND, extended holiday adventures to popular multi-state destinations! Beginners are welcome! We now have a sister Meetup group Southern Sierra Conditioning Hikes, SSCH, with three levels of conditioning hikes presented at Hart Park east of Bakersfield. Hart Park provides the bluffs needed for the extra strength training hills can provided compared to flat lands of west Bakersfield. Check the schedule for Beginners, Intermediate (or Moderate), and Advanced. The hikes are between 3 to 6 miles and completed in 1.5 to 2 hours. Advanced Hikes can go as far as 7 or 8 miles. We have had great success and a lot of fun doing these roller coaster type hikes so we are in better shape for our day hikes and camping trips to the many beautiful, awe inspiring areas mentioned above. This pleasant desert-stroll through sandy washes, rocky bluffs and craggy hills, some mining ruins and a little pink-cast canyon is an SSHC local favorite. We'll eat lunch with a decent view atop a little hill that takes just a bit of scrambling to reach. The hike is a lolly-pop at 11 Miles and about a 900' elevation gain. We are likely to be sharing the loop with a few 4x4s as this is a popular rock-crawling area and open to off-road vehicles. This won't impact our hike in any way. This is a great hike for beginners! DETAILS BAKERSFIELD CARPOOLERS MEET AT 6:45AM AT STARBUCKS Bakersfield hikers carpool from the Starbucks at Hwy 58 & Weedpatch at 6:45AM - we will leave at 7AM sharp. Desert area hikers will meet us at the Jawbone Canyon Store at around 8AM where we will drive on to the trailhead by about 8:30. We will park at the mouth of Last Chance Canyon and hike northward up the beautiful and interesting canyon along the east side of Red Rock Canyon State Park. The hike is either easy or moderate depending how far you desire to hike. This is an all day adventure so bring snacks, lunch, 3 liters of water and clothing appropriate for changing Weather. Check the forecast. We will hike north thru a very steep walled gorge cut thru the rising El Paso Mountains in the Last Chance Canyon drainage. Bounded by the left lateral Garlock Fault to the south, a major fault in southern California. When we exit north thru the canyon, we will be in Red Rock country walking in the occasional shade of the canyon walls. Directions: Bakersfield hikers leave at 7AM from the Starbucks at Hwy 58 & Weedpatch. Carpool to Jawbone Canyon Store on Hwy 14 north of California City (just south of Red Rock Canyon). The Bakersfield hikers will car pool and arrive at the store by about 8AM. TO THE TRAILHEAD FROM JAWBONE - BE THERE BY 8:30AM Drive about 1 mile north on Hwy 14 to the Red Rock - Randsburg road, turn right and travel east about 5 miles to the Last Chance Canyon dirt road, turn left and follow the road less than 1 mile to the mouth of the canyon. We will meet at the trailhead about 8:30AM.

Just in Case: If you have medical issues that do not prevent you from hiking, but could arise during the hike, please email me emergency contact information and a brief description of the medical issue. This will be kept completely confidential and will ONLY be used in case of an emergency. Disregard this if you provided the information when you signed up on the Meetup site. Come join us! This hike is good for members who just need a short day hike or those who simply need to be kind to their bodies. Be sure to RSVP so we know to expect you and please cancel your RSVP if you cannot make it. This hike is a great way to to begin your hiking obsession. Even though this is a new hike for this group, this is the level where we all start out. You will be able to gauge where you are and where you want to be. If you want to stay here, that's great too because you will find that our members are fantastic and fun to spend the evening with. I will add options for you to test yourself but also provide alternate routes if you are just out to enjoy the evening. Please note that we will only go as fast as the slowest hiker. This hike is different that the beginner hikes in the following ways: - The pace is slower. - Hills will be provided as options and always with rest periods. - And as always...This hike is always subject to change. If you unanimously complain about being bored, we will crank it up! Once you are comfortable with this introductory hike, you have the option to move up to our more challenging conditioning hike(s) to develop your abilities further. We support each other and we always have fun! Important Notice: The Organizers, and members in this group are not professional leaders, guides, or mountaineers.

The Majestic Theatre in Corvallis, Oregon has been home to community arts performances since 1913 and needs YOU to fuel what we do. What do we mean? The 100 or so events we put on at the Majestic every year are powered by thousands of volunteers like YOU who bring their talent and creativity to our stages. We need actors, singers, improv-ers, writers, dancers, technicians, artists, and volunteers of every kind to dream up and execute the locally-sourced entertainment that we love to produce. Thus, we will be posting Meetups for auditions, workshops, classes, shows, meetings, calls for volunteers and other Majestic functions in hopes of bringing new faces from the Corvallis and surrounding area into the Majestic community (more like family). Additionally, you can email [email protected] for more info about getting involved with the Majestic or to setup a tour or meeting.
