If you think Southern California is all shopping malls, freeways and theme
parks ... then why don't you take a hike with us!
We are first and foremost a hiking club. WE LOVE TO HIKE. We have hikes for
beginners, we have hikes for advanced, experienced hikers, we have hikes for
everyone in between. Some of our hikes are easy, some are moderate, and some
are very difficult. Our hikes can be lots of fun and a great opportunity to

Coming soon! The 25th Annual Waterman Rendezvous!
On Saturday, July 26th,
celebrate the HPS's milestone 25th Annual Waterman Rendezvous with your hiking
friends and Bill Burke, an accomplished mountaineer with more than one
milestone to his name. Bill is the only person to climb the highest mountain on
every continent after reaching age 60. Waterman Mountain is located in one
of the most beautiful sections of the Angeles National Forest, with stunning
pines, great views, and an exciting summit block. A number of HPS hikes will
make their way to the summit, converging to create the biggest potluck in the
Angeles National Forest (if we do say so ourselves!). Bring a great attitude, a
treat to share, and appropriate hiking gear. See some of your options below...
HPS is over fifty years old. Here is a collection of maps developed
by Brent Washburne and digitized by Wolf Leverich showing our routes
from the 1990s.
