This Wednesday morning, November 15 is a great opportunity to explore Weir Canyon on a group hike led by the Irvine Ranch Conservancy. The 4-and- a half-hour hike begins at 7:30 AM and participants will hike over Rifle Range and continue to the Overlook Trail – where they can take in sweeping views of the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks and more distant views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Los Angeles Basin, and Cleveland National Forest.
The return hike will meander through a beautiful oak woodland. The hike is 9.5 miles in total.
The hike begins from the Outdoor Education Center Weir Lot at the Weir Canyon Nature Preserve.
Participants are asked to wear hiking shoes/boots and bring water, a trail snack, sunscreen, hat, and any other necessary equipment to keep you safe on the trail. Each hiker must carry their own water and supplies. A red-tinted flashlight or headlamp is recommended.
Pre-registration is required; no walk-ins allowed.
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.
This is a Level-4 activity on the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings.
