It's a three-day weekend for me, as well- so either day works.

Haven't tried this hike before, but it looks interesting.

Chippewa, I'll let you make the call as to which day/time works best. :)

Lets do Sunday at 11am at the parking lot near the firehouse at the end of Silverdo Canyon Rd?

See you then...

Eric

EDIT:    Here's the map to the trail.    Its actually not at the end of Silverdo Cyn Rd.

This is the same place yes?  http://socalhiker.net/hiking-beeks-place-via-black-star-canyon/

Uh, but who starts a hike at 11am? haha. Any chance we can start it at 9:30a? I know, I know, I said executive decision. Okay, if not, I will see you at 11.

I'm easy and either time works for me.

Parking at the site may be crowded.  If you guys want, we can meet at my place and carpool from there.  Up to you.

Welcome to the thread, Spondulix!  What days/hours/activities work best for you?  That way, we can plan for the next one, or modify next week's meetup. 

Nothing's completely set in stone yet! :)

Chippewa, surfhb, what do you think about moving back our hike time so that Spondulix can join us?

Maybe we can also consider doing a hike that's a bit closer to Chippewa and Spondulix, if she'do like to join us next week.  Just a thought. :)

That'd be great for me, too! I'm fine with keeping the date the same (Sun, but noon) if that's good for everyone else. No idea where is good to meet, though...

Sunday at noon works for me.  I think if we maybe meet somewhere a little more central (maybe closer to Chippewa) that would work?  What do you think?

Chippewa, any good hiking locations around there you can suggest?

I'm in the middle of all of you. And I don't hike around my house. There is Chino Hills state park off Brea canyon. But that's boring. Chantry flats in Arcadia is really purrrty. 210 off Santa Anita. And makes it middle ground for Spondulix.

They serve food and beer at the packing station, too. Parking can be a bit of an issue. But at 12 perhaps not. And you will need an adventure pass (can buy at packing station ).

I was going to recommend mtg somewhere by 210/santa Anita (carpool lot) then we can carpool into Chantry flats... I have an adventure pass. Just an idea.

Hi y'all,

FYI. The OC group is meeting up at Chantry Flats this Sunday 1/17 @ 12p for hiking. Chantry is actually in San Gabriel Valley, but we are bringing peeps from SFV. Found common grounds. :)

So I wanted you all to know about it too. We will be meeting up at the One West Bank on Foothill/Santa Anita at the One West Bank Parking lot (Santa Anita exit off the 210, go N, the bank is on the corner of Santa Anita and foothill)
 
Bank: http://bit.ly/1BZ44nq
Chantry Flats: http://www.yelp.com/biz/chantry-flat-recreation-area-sierra-madre

We will then carpool or follow each other up, depending on size of group.

Hope to see you there!

-Chippewa

PS: chantry has lunch & drinks/beer, if interested.

Any other Irvine families here with small kids (I have a 4.5 year old daughter) who want to get together for a small BBQ or potluck? My husband and I have had a tough time finding like-minded friends since moving here.  We would love to meet other folks here with kids for inexpensive outings.

I'm in the area, but not that mobile (no car or bike...yet!). But, I want to go to at least one of these meetups in the next few months.

My schedule's pretty open, so anytime works for me.

WhoopWhoop, we can probably meet somewhere closer to you and carpool, which is what we did last time. 

What activity is everyone interested in this time?
