So there is this place with 150+ stairs . . . 

To go along with last month's squat challenge; Our Forever Fit leader, Melissa Rocha, has asked us to join her as she attempts (for the very 1st time) to conquer this unnatural phenomenon!

Did you know that Pico Canyon was the site of the first commercially successful oil well in the western United States—Pico No 4. Today the canyon offers hikers, bikers, and equestrians not only a glimpse of California history, but shaded trails into the rugged and lushly vegetated headwaters of Pico Canyon, and the Santa Susana Mountains. Trails into the backcountry are accessed from a paved road leading out of Mentryville.

Located at the base of Pico Canyon’s chaparral-dominated slopes, Mentryville was an 1880’s oil boom town built around Pico No. 4. Named for Charles Alexander Mentry, the oil well’s tenacious driller--and later superintendent of the company that would become Chevron—Mentryville was home to over 100 families until the early 1930’s. Pico No. 4 went on to become the longest continually operating oil well in the world, closing in 1990. Historic buildings still stand including Charles Mentry’s grand thirteen-room mansion, a one-room school house, and a period barn. Pico No. 4 are registered as California State Historical Landmarks.



Don't forget to bring sunscreen, a hat, & wear a good pair of walking shoes.
