About the hike:
This 5-6 mile trail hike in the heart of LA will be led by Mark May of Stanford Outdoors Club. We will start in Culver City and ascend to the top of the famous Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. Hikers can choose to go up via the 282 stairs or a switchback trail. We will then follow the Park to Playa Trail across the new La Cienega pedestrian bridge for an exploration of Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area. We will stop at the Stoneview Nature Center along the way. For most of the hike we will enjoy gorgeous views of the entire sweep of LA basin, from Santa Monica to the San Gabriel mountains and beyond. Elevation gain is approximately 750 feet.
