Ziplining on the north side of the San Gabriels
We'll start off at Union Station in downtown LA and head straight for our first activity, a high-flying zipline adventure surrounded by trees and a world away from Los Angeles. Make sure you wear full-coverage shoes and don't have a fear of heights, or are ready to get rid of one! You'll start with a safety briefing and then spend the next 1.5 hours zipping alongside trees, hiking through the forest, and flying down from the tree tops to the forest floor.
You'll be accompanied by two experienced and friendly guides, who will be with you every step of the way. You'll have a blast flying through the air, but you'll also learn about the forest, it's animal inhabitants, and also about the San Andreas fault and how it has changed the surrounding landscape over thousands of years.
When this part of your adventure is over, you'll have time to grab a bite to eat in downtown Wrightwood. Our recommendation? A lite sandwich and excellent craft beer at The Village Grind. Or maybe you missed out on breakfast? Try out the Evergreen Cafe for breakfast all day, or a hearty meal at Mexico Lindo.
After lunch, we head to the Devil's Punch Bowl, to see first-hand the effects of this area's tumultuous past and present. We'll start off with a visit to the nature center, where you will get to see some of the reptiles that live in the park, and talk to experts about how these animals survive on this side of the San Gabriel mountains. Next, we'll head into the "punchbowl" with a guided nature hike, looping down to the comparatively lush streambeds below and learning about the different ecosytsems created there by thousands of years of rain, wind, and the tremendous power of nature.
Feel like going it alone? Meander through the Punchbowl and then join us near the nature center for a snack and relaxing conversation in the shade of the Pinyon Pines.
Vazquez Rocks - seen in Star Trek, Austin Powers, Starship Troopers, and many others
Feels a bit like the Planet of the Apes, eh?
Vazquez Rocks has an interesting history, starting with early California's own "Zorro" and continuing up to the present day with numerous film, television, and even cartoons. You'll learn about the cultural and geologic history of this unique and famous formation, and even climb it!
Enjoy the sunset from this iconic Hollywood landmark before we head back to Los Angeles, arriving at 5:30-7:00pm.
