• What we’ll do
Note: Advanced Hike (because of the distance only, it’s all on good trail and fire road). You will go on a waiting list until you tell me that you have gone on a longer hike recently and can move uphill at 2.5 mph or faster.
Heavy precipitation/Excessive Heat/Fires in Area/Revolution/Apocalypse Cancels!
Note: co-listed with CHAT Meetup; expect n*pi/e hikers.
I’ll be hiking at a moderate (2.5 mph) pace, just enough for an aerobic workout at times as ascend the Los Leones trail from Los Liones Canyon to the big wide fire road that leads up to Parker Mesa Overlook, one of the happiest, snackiest, most scenic spots in the Santa Monica Mountains. But that’s not all! Those who desire may join me as I continue on to Eagle Rock at a slightly slower pace. Those of you who have had enough may return the way we came instead of continuing on the awesome ocean and canyon view infested trek to the big Eagle Rock in time for lunch. We will return the same way, but it will be even MORE beautiful on the route back just because it always is. This hike is fantastic in all the typical weather extremes we get in So Cal (from full sun on up to having to use “intermittent” on your wipers) and your feet will thank you at around 3:15 in the afternoon. This is NOT a beginner hike and those who cannot keep up with the group to PMO will be sent back to the trailhead on their own.
• What to bring
Good solid hiking footwear, 2-3 liters of water, hat, sunscreen, wind layer, well broken in hiking clothes, a smile, snacks and lunch for the rock, and at least 6 of the 10 essentials.
