Hey Everyone,

It's the 3rd year anniversary of The Moderate Hikers, so let's celebrate with food, wine and a spectacular moonrise!

Join us on this 6 mile r/t hike to Parker Mesa Overlook.

As we make our way towards the ocean on rolling terrain, we'll be passing between dramatic Topanga and Santa Inez canyons on a wide fire road. Once there, we’ll be rewarded with expansive views of the Pacific ocean and the Los Angeles basin. We’ll enjoy our snacks and drinks as we watch the twinkling lights come up in the city and the moonrise over the basin. There’s a good chance we’ll spot the deerfeeding in the meadow at the start of the hike.

I'll have the donation jar out to help offset the cost of running the group. Your donation is greatly appreciated!

We’ll be packing in our food and beverages.

Some of this hike will be in the dusk/dark.

DISTANCE: 6 miles r/t


DURATION: who cares? it's a party!

From the 101 fwy heading south, exit at Topanga Canyon Boulevard and turn right. Drive 8 miles into Topanga Canyon to Entrada Road and turn left. Stay to the left at every opportunity until you reach the park's main parking lot, about one mile up. Parking is $10 but there is some street parking.

From PCH, travel north on Topanga Canyon Boulevard, then turn right on Entrada Road.
