NTRODUCTION: The Greek freighter SS Dominator ran aground at Palos Verdes point in 1961 while lost in fog. For two days the Coast Guard and tugboats attempted to refloat her, but heavy seas and high winds only forced her higher onto the rocks. After two days the crew abandoned ship. Nowadays the rusted hulk of this shipwreck is scattered along a half mile of the Palos Verdes shoreline, and serves as a point of interest for hikers and kayakers alike.

HIKE DESCRIPTION: Join me for a delightful hike along beautiful, rugged coastline with tide pools to a shipwreck.. There should be ample street parking near the trailhead, although carpooling is recommended.
Most of the hike will be on rocky shoreline so it may be slow-going and challenging for those who are not familiar with rock- and boulder-hopping. Wear sturdy shoes or boots, preferably the lug-soled variety.
