Tonight at 6:30, Charmlee Wilderness Park will host a free stargazing hike (parking is $4). The City of Malibu will provide a telescope, but if you’ve got your own or a set of binoculars, feel free to bring them along to take advantage of some clear winter skies.

If you can’t make it out tonight, the park will also host a full moon hike on the evening of Wednesday, January 27th. That hike is also free, but you’ll have to call 310-317-1364 to reserve a spot. Happy stargazing!

Get directions to the park.

On May 8th, most Los Angeles city and county trails will re-open with restrictions and safety guidelines. 

This follows nearby trail re-openings in San Diego and Ventura Counties a few weeks ago, as well as in the San Francisco Bay area.

Because the situation on the ground is changing rapidly and so many different jurisdictions and land agencies are involved, we STRONGLY recommend checking with the park you'd like to visit before you go to make sure they're open. Bring a mask, stay socially distanced, and have backup plans in case the trailhead you want to use is too crowded.

Remember, these trails can be closed again and if we don't follow safety guidelines, they will be.
