Want a chill hike to LA Natl Forest’s best kept secret? Then join Soolgi and Nick on a hike to Switzer falls! (just kidding about it being a secret, the falls have 167 reviews and 4.5 stars on yelp.) We’ll leave 8am from SC and drive up to the forest. Take a nice 3.5 mile stroll to the waterfall. Take some nice pics for your insta #nature #picofarock. eat some yummy lunch grub. turn back down for another 3.5 miles. drive off into the sunset and arrive back to SC around 3:30pm. It’s going to be a swell day away from the hustle and bustle of usc and a fun way to get outside! We will probably get to pet a lot of dogs too.
Funny yelp review: Sarah H. said “I’ve wanted to do this hike for awhile after reading so many good reviews, but was severely disappointed once on the trail. There are little flies EVERYWHERE.” (dont worry probably wont be as many flies in winter ha)
