As an option after getting lost in the gardens and working up an appetite, we can head over to a local place to have lunch.
MEETUP LOCATION AND TIME: Just south of I-210, Foothill Freeway at 301 North Baldwin Avenue, Arcadia, across from the Santa Anita Race Track., Arcadia at 10:00 a.m. Use Google Maps for directions there.
EARLIER MEETUP LOCATION: Those out my way can meet me in Woodland Hills at 9:00 a.m. and take off from there in a car pool. Meet at the corner of Leonora Dr. and Ponce Avenue. Ponce Ave. is the first street east of Fallbrook. We can park on Ponce which is not in front of any homes. If car pooling, please help out the driver by contributing some gas money.
EARLIER MEETUP EXACT LOCATION:
DISTANCE: 5 miles
ELEVATION GAIN: 200′
TRAIL DESCRIPTION: Walkways throughout the gardens
THE PACE: Since the area is mostly flat, I would like to walk at a pace that would cover all the grounds in thee hours. We’re going to stay together, so no faster than the slowest person. But, please try to keep up with me. I will make stops occasionally at restrooms.
DURATION: I’d like to get back to the cars before 1:00 p.m. so, as an option, we can head out to a local restaurant to be named later.
LEVEL: Beginners on up
