Activity: day hike
Difficulty: Moderate: roughly 14 miles of walking through the urban sprawl that we call home. Not much elevation gain, but come ready to walk!
If you think you have to go on expeditions in the backcountry or hang from precarious cliffs to find adventure, think again! While most SC Outfitters trips look to leave the city to enjoy the outdoors, this trip will look within the good ‘ol City of Angels for the first time ever to give you an urban adventure you won’t forget.
Join Ally and Perry for the inaugural “Urban Outfitters”* expedition through the city that we all know and love, yet that some of us don’t really know at all! We will be rising early to catch sunrise from a quintessential LA viewpoint and then will be hiking back to campus—stopping at cool sights, eateries and neighborhoods along the way. And come ready to learn, since your guides will be dropping fun facts about the history of these places as we hike.
So throw on your board shorts, skip the traffic and come hike Los Angeles like a real Angeleno.**
*No hipster clothing guaranteed.
** The word “hella” is banned throughout the duration of the hike.
