Nature Hikes with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy
Conservancy managed trails offer a wide variety of walks and experiences, many of which feature spectacular views, native plants and wild flowers, fascinating geology, glimpses of the Peninsula's history, and animal sightings. They range from easy strolls to strenuous climbs up hillsides and ridges. A limited number of trails are accessible to those in wheelchairs or strollers for small children.
Many of the trails are narrow, and you may encounter other users – hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians. We encourage you to be courteous and respectful of the other users of these beautiful open spaces. Always bring water and wear adequate sun protection.
