Thursday Morning Super Trek: Weir Canyon to the Overlook Trail

Do you like the pace of the Thursday Morning Treks, but want to go a little longer distance? Join us this morning for a hike in Weir Canyon to the Overlook Trail. We will hike through coastal sage scrub and oak woodlands and up the Overlook Trail. On a clear day, we will be rewarded with sweeping views of the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks and more distant views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Los Angeles Basin, and Cleveland National Forest. Please wear hiking shoes/boots and bring water, a trail snack, sunscreen, hat, and any other necessary equipment to keep you safe on the trail.

Participants must be able to hike 9+ miles with an accumulated elevation gain of 1800 feet at an average moving rate of 3 miles per hour.

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