Thursday Morning Trek: Orchard Hills

Hiking & Fitness

Join us for a challenging and beautiful adventure as we hike to the Hangman’s Tree Monument on Loma Ridge. Hike distance is 6 miles and affords fantastic views along the way, spanning the Pacific coastline, San Gabriel peaks and the Santa Ana Mountains. Several very steep climbs and descents are part of this route. We’ll accumulate almost 1800 feet of climbing elevation along this route. Portions of the hike will take us around an avocado orchard that borders on the natural open space. Far-reaching views from the highest point reward your effort.

Please be prepared with plenty of water and closed toe sturdy shoes or boots, sunscreen and all other necessary elements to keep you healthy on the trail. All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-4 activity on the land.
