Parker Mesa overlook

Distance: 7.5 miles round trip

Elevation: 1600ft- elevation gain: 900 ft

Difficulty: 6/10

Duration: 3 Hours (approx)


The vista from the Parker Mesa Overlook is stunning. You can see all of the LA basin laid out before you, the snow capped San Gabriel Mountains to the north, Catalina Island to the south, and the crescent shaped coastline of Santa Monica to the east.


Bring tons of water, a hat, sunscreen and a chia pet.


Dogs are not allowed on these trails.


We will go up.  We'll hike and look at stuff, then we'll come back.  Pretty cool huh?


Here are some photos of the awesomeness

    Outstanding. This is the biggest hike I have undertaken since my accident/injury in June. It kicked my butt, but was good for me. Great peeps...we had 5 hike leaders on this one!!!

    Lydia, even though I have not consulted with Mr. Trump, I will most likely be bringing up the rear....cuz I am slower. No worries...if you need to stop for a breather or two or three, you will be in good company.

      Thank you so much for contacting me. I had every intention of going, but now a family member has just contacted me and will be in town. You took away my concerns and I will absolutely be on the next hike. Thanks again!
