Skull Rock Hike via Temescal Canyon with SEAOSC Younger Members
Time and Location
About the Event
A moderately challenging 4.6 mile loop trail in the Pacific Palisades. This route takes you on the popular Temescal Canyon Trail to Temescal Falls (really just a small cascade, most often only a trickle). From there, the hike makes a strong but shaded ascent up to the ridge and to Skull Rock, a cool little rock formation with some excellent views of the Pacific Coast and inland (on clear days). This is a great, slightly-more-than-casual workout hike with lots of great options to extend your trip to a full-day hike, too!
Parking: You can park for free on Temescal Canyon Rd or Sunset Blvd, or pay the fee inside the park but be careful to stop carefully since they have a camera stop sign that is very sensitive.
