Great Outdoors Los Angeles presents
LA - GO Picnic and Social Hike at Chilao
Hi folks, this will be our first outdoor event/hike in months.
For this activity we are limited to 12 members because of Covid-19.
We require that you wear a mask/face covering. We will be practicing physical distancing; bring your own chair & please agree to stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms' length) from other people. Bring hand sanitizer. Carpooling is not recommended at this time, except with your housemates.
*** Please only come if in good health, with no known Covid-19 symptoms or exposure. If you feel even the slightest bit ill, please do stay at home. Thank you for protecting everyone's health.***
SUMMARY: Join us at the Chilao Picnic area, 5300’ elevation, to enjoy our 1st Great Outdoors outdoor picnic gathering and day hike since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We will gather in a designated picnic area and enjoy our own lunches. This will not be a potluck lunch. Please bring your OWN lunch; food sharing is not encouraged, but open to each member’s level of comfort.
After our picnic, we will head off to the Silver Moccasin trailhead for an easy social group hike! There are easy trails at the day use area and we will venture off on one as we enjoy a day in the great outdoors. For those wanting some more “unofficial event” adventure, the Silver Moccasin trail heads up to Cooper Canyon where trails are more challenging.
Please sign-up and come join us for a relaxing and safe picnic and fun hike!
Driving directions & parking: Come up Highway 2. Don't turn in at the Chilao Campground entrance. Do keep going and turn in at the "Chilao Visitor Center" sign. Pass the Visitor Center lot on your right, then turn left into the Day Use/Picnic Lot. We will try to get Picnic site #1 (red pin on map).
