Temescal Canyon Hike

Just Park on Sunset, Temescal Canyon Blvd, or some residential sidestreets.  Just watch out for signage.

This will be approximately a 4 mile hike (from Sunset Blvd to Sunset Blvd). about 850 feet or considered maybe a level 3-4 (?) hike.

This is a moderately difficult hike.  Although I will say that even though challenging, people who are complete beginners still found it very enjoyable, yet challenging.

We will take the Sunset trail that basically goes from the road up to the main trail.

This will be the main Temescal Ridge and canyon loop starting from the canyon side and then going down the ridge side.

Bring water, snacks, good shoes, and just in case . . . . a headlamp if you have one, although you most likely will not need it.

    Beautiful area, nice weather, friendly folks, and great clouds over the beach. Had fun watching a rabbit hanging out on the trail after the group passed by.

    I wish I could make it but 530 doesn't work as well as I thought it would. Hope you all have fun.
