chesseboro3HIKE WALKTHROUGH: From the trail head we will head up the Cheeseboro Canyon Trail 4.6 miles. This trail is an old ranch road along a stream bed through a valley oak savannah and coast live oak riparian zone. Next we will take the Sheep Corral Trail 1.0 mile. This trail will connect us with the Palo Comado Canyon Trail 4.4 miles. The first 1.2 miles, of this trail are gentle stroll along a creek to the old ranch center. After this we will climb from 1,200 feet elevation to 2,140 feet elevation. We then take the Modelo Trail 1 mile, back to the parking lot.

WATER REQUIRED. WATER CHECK WILL BE PERFORMED. If you do not take enough water or are not appropriately equipped for this hike, you will be turned away from doing this hike with us even if you show up. Please note, that we have expectations for Level 8 evening hikers. Read all the details.

REQUIREMENTS: At least 3 to 4 liters of water. Sunscreen and small snacks/lunch bite

RECOMMENDED:  A good snack and comfortable walking shoes.  Try to pack lightly as you’ll be using plenty of your energy getting to the top and coming back down the trail. Have a light breakfast prior to the hike. Bring light clothes to keep cool and a hat to keep the sun out of your eyes.

DOG FRIENDLY?: Yes, all dogs must be on a leash.  Attending dogs must have previous hiking experience and should be friendly with other dogs/hikers.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
Contrary to popular belief, you know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
