What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
A moderately challenging 4.6 mile loop trail in the Pacific Palisades. This route takes you on the popular Temescal Canyon Trail to Temescal Falls. From there, the hike makes a strong but shaded ascent up to the ridge and to Skull Rock, a cool little rock formation with some excellent views of the Pacific Coast and inland.
Not really a beginners hike--there are significant stretches of uphill--but if you are a beginner and want a challenge then this is for you. The reward will be spectacular views from Skull Rock and from there back to the starting point is all downhill.
