The Sierra Club's Hike on the Arroyo Burro Trail
updated: May 29, 2014, 8:05 PM

By Robert Bernstein

The Arroyo Burro Trail is reputed to be an original Chumash local trail. It is not as well known as other front country trails. The lower part has a lot of up and down, which may discourage some hikers. And the upper part goes almost straight up the side of the mountain to the top with almost no switchbacks to ease the way!

The Sierra Club hike this past Friday followed the lower Arroyo Burro Trail, starting on the Jesusita Trail from the water treatment plant. The hike went as far as the "420 Rock" which is just before the steep ascent to the top of the mountains.

Here are my photos.

Al Sladek has been leading these Friday night Sierra Club hikes for over 40 years! Everyone is welcome!

Every Friday we meet at 6:00PM in front of the Mission at the fountain pool. From there we carpool to the hike, which is always a secret destination until it is announced at 6:15PM sharp.

Unlike our weekend Sierra Club hikes, these hikes are a bit more chaotic and "self-paced" with the group getting fairly spread out. It is good to bring a flashlight, and good to stay with at least one other person who has done the hike before.
