This month’s hike will take us to the old oil boomtown of Mentryville in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Mentryville was the first successful oil field in California, and from 1876 to 1990 produced more oil than any other site to that time.

There are a few buildings preserved and a great hiking trail.

Carpool from the church at 8 AM or meet in the Mentryville parking area at 8:30 AM
