HIKE WALK-THROUGH: 
We will start from the parking lot located at Ascot HIlls Park. This community parks offers views of Downtown Los Angeles, mountains and surrounding cities. The hills right now are filled with Mustard flowers which look very beautiful. This trail is great for kids and for those who wish to begin hiking with some moderate inclines.

Beginner 2 – Beginner hiKes are 2 - 3 miles in length on mostly level ground. These are the hiKes that are targeted to people who have never hiKed before, and who have not lead a very active lifestyle (although hopefully we can help).

MY FRIEND SAID I COULD DO THIS HIKE; I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT:
Contrary to popular belief, you know your body and hiKing experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiKer, please read our hiKe details page, as the hiKe may not suite your experience level. We will have a better experience if every hiKe has hiKers of the intended level.

If you do not have a smart phone or are not on Facebook, it is your responsibility to gain access to the event page on Facebook, at least the night before or morning of, and check if any UPDATES have been made.
