Join us for a relatively fast paced, longer, and more strenuous than usual East Palisades hike. We will be covering most all of the marked trails and quite a few unmarked trails for a total of 6.5 miles. We will have a beautiful day with sunny skies and temps of 58 - 61 deg during the hike.
The hike will begin at the Whitewater Creek parking lot and we will hike at a brisk pace (although not running or jogging) along many trails of the East Palisades Unit making a couple brief stops to hydrate. We will be hiking most all of the marked trails and also a couple miles of unmarked trails. With the planned route and lesser known trails, even those quite familiar with East Palisades will probably get to experience some different trails - at least have them combined in a different manner.
This is not a beginner hike! The pace will be brisk, the hike longer than usual by EP standards, and we will climb some steep and hilly portions a number of times, with a total ascent of 1,500 feet.
