We will start from the parking lot located at Ascot HIlls Park. This community parks offers views of Downtown Los Angeles, mountains and surrounding cities. The hills right now are filled with Mustard flowers which look very beautiful. This trail is great for kids and for those who wish to begin hiking with some moderate inclines.

Beginner 2 – Beginner HiKes are 2 - 3 miles in length on mostly level ground. These are the HiKes that are targeted to people who have never HiKed before, and who have not lead a very active lifestyle (although hopefully we can help).

Thank you to the many people who have reached out and expressed the importance of our with-Friends Groups, and HiKing-with-Friends in their lives. At our core, and from the very beginning, with-Friends has been about bringing more people together to enjoy the great outdoors. For the past decade, we’ve been providing opportunities to do exactly that. We would like to continue to offer excursions that reconnect us with the great outdoors.

Hiking is one of California's permitted outdoor activities. We believe it is possible to maintain safe individual distances while HiKing. Our Coordinators and Santa are committed to the health and safety of our HiKers. As a precaution, we will be taking "No Touch" temperature check on HiKers joining us. We are also asking that you do not participate if you have any signs of being sick, have been sick, or around someone who has been sick in the last 21 days. The good thing is, being outdoors offers us the opportunity to reconnect with nature, while affording us room to satisfy personal space protocols for safety. We are asking that you forego the usual HiKing, KayaKing-with-Friends hugging and hand shakes with one an other.

Also, Please read the entire event post prior to our HiKing event. It has important information about expected supplies and equipment to bring, as well as what to expect on our event. Remember the meeting time is 1:00pm. If you have not join us before give yourself time to find us, so that we can get you all checked in and start our HiKe on time. We look forward to seeing you all well rested and ready for a fun day!

All disclaimers apply to this excursion. We reserve the right to refuse service or cancel any event in the interest of public safety recommendation.

Your Coordinators
