The public is invited to explore seldom-visited lower Millard Canyon on an AFC docent-led hike on Nov. 24 at 9 a.m. Hikers will meet at the Millard campground parking lot. The hike will proceed down Millard Creek to Canyon Crest, where hikers will be shuttled back to the parking lot.
The route is less than a mile and a half, but somewhat rugged with some boulder hopping, so wear hiking boots. Wear a long-sleeved shirt and pants because there are patches of poison oak, and watch for rattlesnakes. Bring water. The hike itself will take 1-1/2 to 2 hours. This is not a hike for dogs. No reservations required.
DIRECTIONS: Drive north on Fair Oaks. Turn left on West Loma Alta Drive. Turn right at Chaney Trail, the third intersection you’ll pass. Follow Chaney Trail all the way to the Millard campground parking lot.
