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
meet other fellow hikers. Plus we all get the opportunity to explore our
HPS Annual Awards Banquet:

interactive maps on CalTopo. Many thanks to Jim Hagar!
