How much magic can be squeezed into one hike? It was hot in Palos Verdes and there wasn’t much shade on the trails. Beyond that my day was nearly perfect. The views from the hills are spectacular. The views from the bluffs below are equally amazing. The trails are smooth, well maintained and well signed – a pleasure to hike on. This was just one of those rare days when everything seemed to fall into place. Helpful maps of this area can be found here: Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy
A two part local hike marking my five year anniversary documenting my time on the trails of Southern California. I started on the beach, Paradise Cove to Point Dume Natural Preserve. And then I took a hike through pretty Escondido Canyon. I had a great day.
Urban hiking this week in the western/central part of L.A. I hiked about four miles at Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area (which I’ll refer to as Hahn SRA for the sake of brevity), a couple miles at Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook and then walked around the La Brea Tar Pits for a couple of hours as well. This made for a full and fun day of hiking.
