Saturday morning July 20, 2013, a baker’s dozen of St. Luke members and friends set out on a 2-mile hike around the perimeter of King-Gillette Ranch, Calabasas, CA. The morning was refreshingly cool, and the hike mildly strenuous for those of us not as accustomed to hitting the trail. We took a few brief breaks to catch our breath and to enjoy the lovely views, pausing for a couple of photos.
King-Gillette boasts a beautiful, new visitors’ center, complete with real, clean bathrooms! Also, free 2-hour parking. We began and ended our hike by the center.
Following our hike, we gathered in a picturesque spot with a picnic table, enjoying delicious bagels and spreads along with cold water — all provided for us by Neil and Megan Gillespie. Thank you!
Special thanks to Neil Gillespie for organizing and leading the hike, ensuring everyone was accounted for, well fed, and had a good time.
We hope you’ll consider joining us on our next hike. Stay tuned as plans are firmed up. We’ll possibly hit the trail again sometime in August.
