NEW DATE! Join us for a very special hike on the Palos Verdes Bluffs on Saturday, December 5 starting at 11 a.m. with author Paul Haddad, who will lead us on one of the hikes from his book, “10,000 Steps a Day in L.A.“
We’ll start with light lunch at 11 a.m. at Nelson’s, located at the Terranea Resort at 100 Terranea Way, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275, where we can park for the duration of our hike. Paul will be there too and you’ll have a unique opportunity to chat with him about his book and if you like, have him sign your own copy. (Available on Amazon.)
From there, Paul will lead us on one of the most breathtaking walks in all of Los Angeles, the Terranea Trail that runs along the cliff line and leads to Pelican Cove.
We’ll pass by the Point Vicente Lighthouse, built in 1926 and still used today and then on to the Point Vincente Interpretive Center, marked by a breaching gray whale sculpture. Inside the center are a myriad of exhibits, including a wing devoted to Marineland of the Pacific, the former sea-themed amusement park that operated a half mile south of here.
Continuing on, we’ll come across an amphitheater-type viewing area facing the ocean that is a popular spot to watch for Pacific gray whales. One of the best times to spot them is in November — when we’ll be there!
From there, we’ll take the Seascape trail that parallels Calle Entradero. When we reach the Calle Entradero trail head, we’ll turn back to Nelson’s where we can kick-back and enjoy a cool beverage at an outdoor table near a fire pit and enjoy the views of Catalina.
