A view from Ojai
Mush; it's the Iditarod!
The Road. Turn left to reach Nordoff Peak
Nordoff Peak, next exit.
The trail is easy to follow. From the trailhead, you'll hike the rocky portion for the first mile. Follow signs as you pass over private property. The crossing is quick and the trail keeps heading up. The surface is mostly rocky and unshaded. This is the trail where I retired Domino from the long hikes. It was a 20+ mile day for me and I had to leave her at Gridley Springs. Long story, but she is obviously ok. Sami made it without a problem. I can't believe she climbed the 30 foot Nordoff Tower! She was too scared to come off it so I had to assist down the very steep stairs. If my son filmed it well, I will add the footage in my next video.
Ayden at age 7 climbed 3500 feet for a total one day trip of over 14 miles. Unbelievable! He was on my shoulders for only a half mile, other than that he did it on his own! I am beat, but he is outside right now jumping on the trampoline! You'd think he'd be tired but this boy rises up at 6 am each day and is becoming slightly more excited for each hike. Today was a bit long, but we did it!
