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 by providing an intro to switchbacks (upward zig-zag trails). This trail is short, but it goes up to a wonderful view of the surrounding area. This trail is meant to showcase how switchbacks may come into play on other hikes. As we head up, we’ll have plenty of breather and water breaks to make sure everyone is able to enjoy the trail. We’ll spend a couple of minutes at the top, where you’ll see a few chairs to sit and catch a distance view of the L.A. skyline. From there we’ll continue on the loop as we take some more switchbacks until we reach the trail head. A great trail that’s just under a mile.
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.
