Parker Mesa Overlook Hike


This is an easy hike up a fire road to reach Parker Mesa Outlook. During the Summer, the hike is best done in the morning or the evening. That’s because there isn’t a lot of shade on the trail, and the midday sun can be intense even when temperatures down by the beach are pretty cool. The vista from the Parker Mesa Overlook is sweeping. All of the LA basin can be seen laid out before you.
