The Columbia Sportswear’s footwear product creation team has asked me to lead a hike for them. They are flying down from Portland to get some consumer insights and to better understand what someone might be looking for in an urban hike where they might go out for lunch afterward.

We'll be doing our Eagle Rock-Musch loop at a leisurely pace with 5.5 miles and 1,100' total ascent

Come to the hike with an open mind as the Columbia team will be asking some of you questions about what goes into picking what you wear on our hikes.

For detailed hike description see

Post hike lunch is down the street at Canyon Bistro (120 N. Topanga Canyon Bl.)

Directions to Trail Head

From Topanga Canyon Boulevard, turn east on Entrada Road; that's to the left if you are coming from the San Fernando Valley. Follow Entrada Road by turning left at every opportunity until you arrive at the turn into park.

Park on street before the left turn into park. We will meet on the corner. Do not park in pay lot.
