FIELD TRIP: Hollenbeck Canyon

4.5 miles roundtrip

DIFFICULTY: MODERATE to EASY

Assuming our February isn't bogged down with rain storms (not a bad thing), Hollenbeck Canyon beckons. For anyone who hasn't been to this location, it is a great walk along grasslands, oak riparian woodland, Viguiera dominated coastal sage scrub, and along a near cliff face bristling with Dudleya pulverulenta and Hesperoyucca whipplei. I was there just last weekend and while nearly everything was dry as a bone, the trees and many shrubs were still gorgeous and the temperature perfect for an ordinarily sunny and hot hike. The creek still had a bit of water in and the Yerba mansa was evident amongst the willows. With the recent rain, the walk should prove to be much more interesting this time around...
