Interested in learning more about WTC? Join current staff and former students on a local hike to learn more about the program. Already signed up for the 2019 class? This is a great opportunity to meet your future classmates and hiking buddies while getting in shape for the class.

Join us on a hike of the HPS Mt. Lukens, at 5,074 feet the highest point in the city limits of Los Angeles, and also the westernmost major summit of the San Gabriels. We will start from Deukmejian Wilderness Park in Glendale, ascending via the Rim of the Valley Trail and descending via the Crescenta View Trail. The views on both legs of the hike are great; if visibility is good, expect to see Old Saddleback, Catalina Island, Santa Barbara Island, the entire Santa Monica range and more.

All are welcome to come and learn about WTC, or reconnect with old friends if you're a former student. Ten miles at a moderate pace. Bring 3 liters of water, snacks, lunch, sturdy hiking boots or shoes, layered clothing, a hat, sunscreen, and hiking poles for descent if desired.

Meet in the parking lot at Deukmejian at 8am. 3429 Markridge Rd, Glendale, CA 91214
