Back To Section: Table of Contents > Trail Notes Directory / California Section Posts /

Notes: We are expecting this leg to be 9 days in total hiking and 3 zero-days in Tehachapi to resupply and rest after.

  • Day 1 – 13 miles hiked / This is a hot dry section and it’s hard to say and guess how far we will go. Just being conservative with estimating. If we are feeling good we can keep going and find a stealth place to camp.
  • Day 2 – 10 miles hiked / hot dry and boring
  • Day 3 – 16 miles hiked /

Green Valley 478.2 mi: Few small town businesses

  • Quick 1.5 mile walk to town. Two gas station/convenience stores which are hiker friendly. Mid-town market has good selection of trail foods and has Wi-Fi. Liquor store has Verizon boost. Liquor store has outside patio. Buy something for Proclaimer Day.
  • Hitch in from the fire station.
  • This used to be the stop of Casa De Luna which stopped accepting hikers to camp in the backyard.
