The Great Outdoors: Leisurely Hike with SoCal Columbia

The Internet says "This is perhaps the closest trail to civilization in L.A., convenient to people on both sides of the hill. Park in the Wilacre Park lot and begin climbing the paved, tree-lined Betty B. Dearing Mountain Trail. Wrap up the hillside and see the Valley expand below you on the right. Concrete gives way to a dirt straightaway. Gradually climb up the hillside, dry brush at your feet, with the occasional bench lookout, mountain biker and dog walker. Descend past the base of Tree People's Coldwater mulch-lined headquarters. Round the bowl above the canyon, past fences both wood and chain-link. A yellow gate spits you out into a residential cul-de-sac. Take Iredell Lane down the hill to Iredell St. and hang a left on Fryman Rd. to bring you past ferns and white fences both picket and modernist to get back to the Wilacre Park lot."

Meeting Spot: Navigate to the trail parking lot at 3431 Fryman Road, Studio City, CA. Meet at the trailhead sign area marked in the photo. 

Post Hike: Join us for a great breakfast/lunch with homemade biscuits at Quality Food and Beverage; about a 15 minute drive down the hill.
