Our November hike was 7 miles at Devil's Punchbowl County Park, on the north side of the San Gabriels. Weather was perfect, sun wasn't hot, and a good time was had by all. I hope the day was as good for the other 12 as it was for me.
I've led our hiking club at work since 1997, with members from all over Southern CA. I also volunteer with the Pacific Crest Trail Association as an Area Coordinator in LA County, and since 1998 maintain the local PCT as a member of the Southern California Trail Gorillas.
