HI FOLKS: this is my first hike that I'm leading with the Santa Monica Hiking Club. I've been leading them for the past 4 years with the Los Angeles Hiking group, so by now I know how not to get everyone lost. Anyway.......
We'll hike uphill from Bienveneda to the Temescal Ridge fireroad, continue another half mile to the Skull rocks--yes, there are a bunch to play on. Then if we get ambitious, we may drop down into Temescal canyon and take a loop route back to the starting point at Via Floresta and Bienveneda.
NO DOGS--PARK RULES, not mine
I'M NOT YOUR MOM, BRING ALL THE USUAL STUFF... hat, water, hiking shoes, all your troubles...
DIRECTIONS: Take Sunset Blvd. in Pacific Palisades to Bienveneda Ave; follow it north to the beginning of the gated community and park on Via Floresta.
LEGAL STUFF: THIS HIKE INVOLVES OPTIONALLY CLIMBING BIG ROCKS. SO-- by going on this hike, you agree to assume all risks of this hike, and that no one at Meetup including the organizer is responsible for your safety. See the Meetup terms of service especially paragraph 6.2:
