Red Rock Canyon Potluck Hike

Time change! Enjoy extra one hour sleep and come at 4pm!

Easy-Intermediate, 4 miles, 800′ gain.
Option not to hike:
If for some reason you don’t want to hike but still want to come, the social event can be driven to, and the main group of hikers should get there about an hour after we begin: 23601 W Red Rock Rd, Topanga, CA 90290. It costs $5 to park there, MasterCard/Visa accepted.

We’ll be passing through a beautiful canyon with huge red, pale purple, and tan sandstone walls.

The hike begins with a steady climb on a fire road for 0.75 mile. We turn right at the junction and begin heading mostly down another fire road for about 1.25 miles.

There will be a picnic area on the right, where we’ll enjoy a potluck picnic. Please bring food, drinks to share. If your item requires utensils/plates/toothpicks, etc., please bring them.

The picnic area is wooded and shaded. Consider bringing insect repellent.

We’ll return the way we came after about 1.5 hours.
