Hiking the Rancho Palos Verdes Hills

Jan 05, 2011 by Lisa Newton

In my previous story a few days ago entitled A Great Sunset Watching Spot at Rancho Palos Verdes , I mentioned that I not only took my pictures there, but I did so while hiking it as well. And what a great hike it was.

Starting at the hilltop, I descended and ascended almost 500 feet over the course of almost 3 miles.

Along the way, I stopped numerous times not only due to the magnificent views, but also to catch my breath. Although the trail descends rather quickly, there are several flat spots to break your down slope, too.

Because, bike and horse riders use this trail, be sure to keep aware of your surroundings to avoid crashing into anything or anyone.

Getting to the Rancho Palos Verdes Hills is easy. It’s right at the point where Crenshaw Boulevard ends. The Burma Road Trail used to be a fire road, and literally starts within a few feet from the entrance and parking lot to the park adjacent to the hills–Del Cerro Park.

I’ll let the map and pictures show you the rest of my hike:
