TRAIL WALKTHROUGH: This hike is great for those who will want an easier level hike with the group. This hike is intended to provide a better preparation for future hikes. We’ll then start of on some of the easy trails inside the park and move through both the east and west ends of the park on various trails that have some incline. There are some small uphills along most of the  but we’ll be taking any small gain at a pace that the group can manage. At mile 2, we’ll be going up to the antennas. This part of the trail will have some good incline, but very doable. Once we head over to mile 2.5, we’ll have a great view of the Los Angeles skyline.  On our way back we’ll come back down to the parking lot area from the view.

REQUIRED: At least a one 20 oz (small) bottle of water, comfortable shoes with grip, and a hat.

RECOMMENDED:  Sun screen (for day versions of this hike), a snack, and a good attitude.

DOG-FRIENDLY?: Yes, but must be on a leash at all times. You will need to pick up after your pet.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for.  You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
