HISTORICAL HIKE AND THE NEXT ONE
Over a dozen TCA members braved a chilly Sunday for the annual January historical hike. This year historian Randy Young took us through the lesser-known areas of Will Rogers State Historic Park telling stories along the way and peppering the narrative with pithy comments. From Sarah’s Point around the polo fields, around the historic house, through the unique round barn, past the outbuildings and corrals, we learned about the past, the present and hopes for the future of this lovely, well-used park located right in our back yard. In 1944 Betty Rogers gave the ranch house and original 242 acres to the state as a memorial to Will Rogers. As we hiked up the trail and looked out over the parkland at Inspiration Point, we realized how fortunate we are to have this wonderful gift.
Join us on Sunday, February 26, as we hit the beach at Zuma, go over Point Dume, and hike right along the ocean to brunch at Paradise Cove and hike back to Zuma Beach.
This has always been a rewarding, peaceful hike as we skirt the waves, scurry over rocks,
and watch the ocean for seals, dolphins, and more.
Call 310.454-4188 for reservations. Meet at Temescal Gateway Park at 8:00 A.M. to car pool.
Sorry no dogs. Rain cancels.
Due to the uncertain weather we have postponed the Point Dume hike, originally scheduled for this Sunday, February 5th, to Sunday, February 26th.
