CCLA April Hike – Temescal Canyon


Date: Saturday, May 11, 2024

Time: 8:45 am meet, hike promptly starts at 9:00 am

Location: Temescal Canyon (15900 Pacific Coast Hwy, Pacific Palisades)

Join us to experience this beautiful 3.0-mile loop trail near Pacific Palisades. Generally considered a moderately challenging route with an elevation gain of 833ft, it takes an average of 1 h 45 min to complete. You'll need to leave pups at home — dogs aren't allowed on this trail.
The Temescal Canyon trail features the best of both ocean and canyon views. This is a popular urban hike because of the proximity to the city. Along the way, you will be greeted by views of Malibu, Santa Monica mountains and Downtown. There is lots of shade near the waterfall, which is often small, but beautiful. A variety of flora can be seen at the appropriate times of the year and there are some cool rock formations to climb on such as Skull Rock. The canyon is wooded and provides shade however there are some no-shade parts of this trail where the trail is exposed. On a clear day at the summit, you may be able to see the San Gabriel Mountains to Catalina.
As usual, bring water, snacks, sun block, hats and whatever else you may need to make this a great experience.
