Posted: February 20, 2021, 11:30 p.m.

Ready for an adventure? As you know, some paths in life are better taken in dirt so come along with the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area volunteers and rangers as they hike the 67-mile-long Backbone Trail in the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains.

Each week the video series, broken up into eight segments and hosted by longtime volunteer Ralph Waycott, will introduce you to LA’s premier hike.

The Santa Monica Mountains feature a Mediterranean climate ecosystem and a diverse and fascinating topography. This is YOUR backyard and it’s filled with unique natural resources! Over 1,000 plant species provide habitat for 500 mammal, bird, reptile, and amphibian species. ????

Ralph has helped lead hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains for almost 20 years. Along with other volunteers and National Park Service rangers, they will share valuable insider information on preparing for the hikes and what you will see and experience each step of the way.
