Thanks to volunteer hike organizer Laura Skorich (front row, center) and Team California for another great hike! This year marks the third year for Laura with her southern California hike. This year, the group included a large contingent from the Thrive LA Meet-up group that Laura co-leads.
This year’s hike climbed to dramatic views in Griffith Park, including views of the famed Hollywood Sign and a side trip to the real Bat Cave from the original TV series.
Over the three years, Team California has raised more than $4,000 for trail preservation and mental health research. A portion of the funds raised this year will go to the Placerita Canyon Nature Center.
Thanks to Laura and everyone who joined or contributed to this year’s hike! It was great to hike with Team California, especially Ayiana, the youngest and one of the fastest hikers in this year’s group.
