HIKE STARTS 10 AM
Perched high above the Palisades and Malibu, 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.

This isn't your usual Parker Mesa Hike! This strenuous hike is a relatively short 5-mile loop, but packs a wallop with about 2100 feet of total ascent, and will bring you home much earlier than an equivalently challenging longer hike.
***The No Fire Road rule will be in effect!***
Post hike lunch is at the Reel Inn - on PCH just across Topanga Cyn. The have an indoor fire pit 👌
