|FIELD TRIP: Will Rogers State Historic Park |
Famous for his wit, Will Rogers was the most popular and highest paid actor in Hollywood in the 1920s. He bought land in Santa Monica, where he developed a ranch overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in what is now known as Pacific Palisades. Will Rogers' ranch consisted of a 31-room ranch house, a stable, corrals, riding ring, roping arena, polo field, and golf course.
After exploring the ranch, we'll hike on a trail that leads to spectacular views of the countryside around the park. The trail is on the tip of the Santa Monica Mountains and offers vistas of both the sea and the mountains.
Hike = 4 miles total ... 2 hours ... sea level to 1200 ft. gain & loss elevation
