Next Brea Runners Hike – Sunday  January 15, 2017: 

We are planning on hiking Inspiration Point in Altadena  at a leisurely pace. The total distance is just over 10 miles. Su said It is not as steep as Hellman’s trail in Whittier . We will meet at Snail’s Pace at 6:30 am and carpool to the trailhead. Each hiker will need to bring 2-3 liters of water and plenty of snacks. Hiking poles are helpful but not necessary. It is a dog friendly trail. The hike will be cancelled if it rains on the day or day before the hike (too muddy). See the link for more information about the trail.  http://www.modernhiker.com/2007/10/02/hiking-echo-mountain-and-inspiration-point

Let us know if you are planning on joining the group and check the Blog or Facebook for updates.

We will be hiking in Hellman Park in Whittier. The plan is to hike to the water tower and back. The water tower is 2 miles up the trail  from the entrance of the park.  Because parking at Hellman Park is very limited and neighborhood parking requires a permit on most streets , we will be meeting at 7:30 am in one of the parking lots of  the nearby Palm Park in Whittier . The address of one of the homes across the street from the parking lot is 5757 El Rancho Drive, Whittier. Use this address to locate the meeting location and for directions. The entrance to Hellman Park is 1.5 miles away from Palm Park making it a 7 miles walk/run/hike journey to the water tower and back. Let us know on Facebook if you plan on joining us and we will make sure everyone makes it to the meeting place before leaving. 


Pat, John, Cindy, Chris, and Pam at Hellman Park 12-27-2015
