Meet in front of the bathroom 2 PM, but leave at 2:15 PM. We'll hike to Parker Mesa. It is a 6 miles hike RT and 800 feet elevation gain. It is a moderate hike. It isn't for beginners. We'll stop at Parker Mesa to take a break/eat.
What is neat about this hike is that it is in Topanga Canyon. If you've never drove through it, you'll discovery a neat part of LA you've never knew existed.
The vista from the Parker Mesa Overlook is stunning. You can see all of the LA basin laid out before you, the San Gabriel Mountains to the north, Catalina Island to the south, and the crescent shaped coastline of Santa Monica to the east.
Please note that dogs are not allowed on the park trails, fire roads, or in the back country. Bummer.
Parking is $10. You'll have to park outside the park if you don't want to pay. You'll have to park on side of the road.
Bring water and sneakers.
