One of our most popular hikes is back! Join us for this beautiful, easy hike led by WOAR Board Members Faith and Jen.
Sunday, October 15
In addition to a rare polo field, renown ranch house, and a lawn that begs to be picnicked on, Will Rogers State Historic Park has plenty to offer to hikers. This is the eastern end of the 65-mile long Backbone Trail, which crosses the Santa Monica Mountains all the way to Point Mugu, and Will Rogers is also home to a delightful short hike to a popular overlook. The loop to Inspiration Point is 2.5 miles long with 325 feet of elevation gain. The gradual hike delivers far-reaching views from Santa Monica Bay to downtown LA. Bring water, snacks and wear sunscreen. Dogs on leash are OK.
Rain within 24 hours of hike cancels.
Will Rogers State Park; meet on the big lawn by the house/museum. Take I-10 west to Pacific Coast Highway, north to Chataqua and go right. Go to Sunset Boulevard and turn right. Go half a mile to Will Rogers Road and turn left at the light, up the winding road to the park entrance.
Or take I-405 and exit at Sunset Boulevard and head west. Take Sunset to Will Rogers Road (approximately 4 to 5 miles) and turn right. Go up the winding road to the park entrance.
Parking fee: $12 There is free street parking outside of the park, but it’s a bit of a walk to the WOAR meeting spot. The parking fees helps preserve the park.
We will meet on the grass, north of the parking lot and polo field.
