Merry Christmas LA Trail Hikers!

Thanks everyone for making this year a spectacular one for me and all your fellow hikers. This group has definitely been a big part of my life since its inception and I’m a very grateful for all the friendly faces I’ve seen on the hikes. I would like to give special recognition all the hike leads for the commitment and leadership they contributed to the group. If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have been able to go on all of this year’s great adventures. And, I hope each and everyone of you who joined us has a warm memory to share about the group. To each and every one of you, I say thanks for making our little hiking group one of the best ones out in Los Angeles! Merry Christmas to you and your families.

Bridge to Nowhere – Hiker Note

All hikers who will be attending the Bridge to Nowhere hike, it is important for you to read through all the details found on the hike page linked below. We reviewed the hike and have changed the level of the hike from level 6 to level 7, increasing in difficulty.

We want to make sure that all hikers are well aware of what this hike entails. It is not a beginner hike and must be considered with a little more care as we’ll encounter heat factors that may impact the group’s performance. If you feel you are fully capable of doing this hike, we’ll see you and all your minimum hiking essentials on Sunday.

LA Trail Hikers on’s Top 10 Summer Hikes’s new website provides a plethora of new features and community involvement.  For all of us who would like some fun and great advice for summer plans, has really hit the spot by providing us various list of Top 10 things to do and experience in the Southern California area.  One of these happens to be a Top 10 list of hikes.  Some members of LA Trail Hikers were asked to contribute to their list of nature filled hikes.  These recommendations were based on the hikes our members have truly enjoyed and considered part of our own top list.  You can check out the fully compiled list here:
