Come out and join me at my favorite CRNRA park for a hike on a pleasant sunny evening. From Whitewater Creek we will hike along many of the unmarked and marked trails of the East Palisades Unit making a couple of stops to hydrate and take in some views. We will hit a number of the highlights including the bamboo forest, inner-bluff, overlook, a lesser known overlook, river bluff, ruins, and cave. With the planned route and several lesser known trails, even those familiar with East Palisades may get to experience some trails they haven't hiked - at least have them combined in a different manner.
The pace will be on the quick side of moderate while we're moving, but we'll take a few minutes to smell the roses at a few points of interest. We make 4 of the large ascents, will climb some steep and hilly portions, including the BAH, during the hike. The hike will be approximately 6 miles with about 1,200-1,300 feet of ascent. This is not a beginner hike and is suited for people with previous D3 or higher hiking experience.
