Rancho Palos Verdes is a beautiful community on the ocean, just south of Los Angeles. The coastline is made of cliffs with trails that lead down to the beach.
One of these is the Terranea Discovery Trail. It’s a 2.2 mile out-and-back moderate hike. There are beautiful views of the ocean the entire way with nice breezes, though there’s very little shade.
- Check the trail before you go to determine how suitable it is for your children, if it’s stroller friendly, if there are restrooms, and if there is any difficult terrain. www.alltrails.com is a great resource for this info.
- Check to see if there’s tree cover and the temperature at the time of day you’re going.
- Be sure to bring plenty of snacks and drinks.
