California San Gabriel Valley - Claremont Hills Wilderness Trail

This vent s osted y irls ho ike mbassador Stephanie Cho! ll attendees ill eceive pecial irls ho ike iveaways efore he ike tarts.

Hey ladies!

Since it's spring break for many school districts in the area, I thought I'd organize a kid-friendly hike before school starts up again & the weather gets hotter. The trail is rather wide and well-maintained - I've seen people push around their kiddos in those heavy-duty strollers so if you have one and don't mind pushing your kids around when they get tired, bring it along! The trail is dog-friendly as well so if you have adventure pups, bring them along, too!

Claremont Hills Wilderness Trail

Total Distance: 4.7 miles (loop)

Total Elevation Gain: 846 ft.

What to bring:

• Comfortable shoes (hiking boots or trail runners recommended but not required)

• 2L of water - remember to bring more water if you're bringing kids or dogs

• Snacks
