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:

Thursday, April 22, 2010
7:30pm – 9:30pm
Casa De Luna Coffee House
9835 Belmont st
Bellflower, CA

The LA Trail Hikers will be meeting on Thursday, April 22, 2010 to organize the trails they want to do in the months of May and June. It is a great way to plan out a few Sundays ahead of time so you can invite others accordingly. We will also like to have different hikers volunteer to lead some of the hikes. Any other ideas, comments, or suggestions will be welcome. We may even be able to plan some scouting for new hikes. This is also a great opportunity for new and prospective members to meet with current hikers to get information and an idea of what we do.

We’ll get together at Casa De Luna Coffee House at 7:30pm (we will have the back room reserved for us). By the way, they have great coffee & Tea. All members/fans of LA Trail Hikers are welcome to join in on this event to provide us some feedback. We hope to see you there!
