Allow Us to Introduce Ourselves!

Hey!

We’re Philip and Monica. We’ve been hiking for over 2 years and have fallen in love with our beautiful state of California. A little background on us, we both grew up in the LA/OC area. For the last two years, every weekend has consisted of us going out and exploring the local mountains. It’s definitely what we look forward to throughout the week and what helps us recharge from this crazy world. Our knowledge and love for the outdoors are what drove us to want to share all of the exciting places with you all.

We hope you guys find this blog extremely useful. Our goal is to provide tons of valuable information on hidden gems and fun local hikes that you might not even know exist. There’s really no better way to get to know your own home state than by going out and adventuring!
