Southern California Hiking Forum?

Postby Sittingbull » Mon Apr 06, 2015 7:40 am

I really enjoy High Sierra Topix, but I live in Los Angeles and unfortunately can't make it to the Sierras every week.

Is there a good Southern California hiking & backpacking forum I'm missing out on? So far I've only managed to find very specific local forums (San Gabriel Mountains, Santa Barbara) or really general ones like Backpacker Magazine.

It's not that active (yet?) but I think Jeff Hester's site is a good place to start:

Here is a Facebook page for So Cal Hikes.

"On this proud and beautiful mountain we have lived hours of fraternal, warm and exalting nobility. Here for a few days we have ceased to be slaves and have really been men. It is hard to return to servitude."

I usually check this one for conditions around San Gorgonio:


And for Mt San Jacinto:

I realize they are both area specific (and not for the overall SoCal area). The San J forum seems to focus on the Skyline Trail a lot. The San G forum covers all areas of that wilderness area and seems more informative. Maybe I'll see you out there sometime.
