Fee: $10 per vehicle

 Description: We’ll descend into riparian Curry Canyon, climb through meadows and oak/pine woodland to secluded Frog Pond for lunch. We’ll then make a steep ascent through chaparral country to the Green Ranch site and Oak Knoll before returning steeply downhill to Curry Point. Much of this loop includes sections that burned in the September 2013 Morgan Fire. Early season wildflowers should be abundant. Allow 7 hours for this 9.5 mile hike with a total elevation gain of about 2100 feet. Steady relaxed pace with a 30-minute lunch and other rest breaks. Bring layered clothing, sturdy foot ware, lunch and plenty of water. Be prepared for mud and poison oak. Rain cancels.
