Welcome to the Wilderness Adventures Section!
We're dedicated to exploring and preserving the outdoors, with trips that range from urban walks and dayhikes in the local mountains to weekend lodge excursions, backpacks, ski/ snowshoe outings, and bus trips to far-flung places.
We welcome individuals, couples and families of all ages and from all geographic regions on our outings.
About the Wilderness Adventures Section
We believe that when you're passionate about the outdoors you work to protect it. We help people discover and enjoy the earth's wilderness, mountains, wetlands, woodlands, seashores, rivers, desert and plains.
Our outings take place all throughout Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties, as well as Yosemite, the Sierra Nevada and beyond. We've taken groups to the Grand Canyon, the Humboldt redwoods, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Bryce and Zion National Parks and more.
Join us Sat. Dec. 6 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. as we hike Griffith Park, the finest city park in the country. This is a strenuous hike of 13 miles with 3500' elevation gain on scrambles to nine or more different peaklets. Plan to spend most of the day hiking at a moderate pace. We will hike from Burbank Peak to Beacon Hill passing by Bee Rock, the Hollywood Sign, and the Old Zoo. We will start the hike at 8:00 AM at the Griffith Park Harding Golf Course, located on the right side of Griffith Park Drive driving north from the Merry Go Round. Bring food for lunch at the Magic Tree and for snacks at Dante’s. Poles and good shoes are recommended as well as sunscreen and at least two liters of water (there are a couple places where it is possible to replenish water supplies). Leaders:
