    Calling all So Cal Hangers!

    I noticed recently that there have been quite a few new hangers from So Cal signing up on the forums lately.

    I wanted to see if anyone would want to have a hang of sorts to get together and hike local trails?

    Good point!

    Let's see anyone from LA, OC, SD, SGV, and SFV? Areas to hang, I was thinking Big Bear (per the last hang which I wasn't able to go), San Gabriel Mountains, Los Padres, or any other place...I'm open.

    Time wise, maybe a Friday to Sunday hang?

    I'm more than in! My hammock should be here in about two weeks. Would be cool to hang with some pros.

    We need to get a good consensus on areas to hang based on personal experiences from others. I know of a few places but I want to see everyone's ideas.

    Some places I know of are:

    West Fork to Bear Creek Trail (San Gabriel)- Tons of trees next to the river
    Henninger Flats (Altadena) - LAFD maintained campgrounds with lots of trees and night time views are nice
    Hoegee's Campgrounds - Good amount of trees and available water source nearby
    Spruce Grove Campgrounds - same as Hoegee's
    Big Bear - Triggrhpy held the last HF Hang there last year..I forget the exact campground,

    SoCalMike hopefully chimes in also since I believe he has some good spots in mind for a hang.

    The campgrounds I've suggested above all require hiking in (except for Big Bear), anywhere from 3 to 5 miles one way.

    Here's a video from one of the guys I subscribe to on YT. He just posted a video close to one of the areas I suggested for a hang. I can contact him to get an idea exactly where this was.
