Temescal Canyon Will Rogers Loop Trail is a 13.5 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Pacific Palisades, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This is an amazing loop trail but be warned, this is really more like 16 miles than 13.5. Took this from the base of Temescal, connected through a "closed" trail over the Rodger's Road Trail and finally across Rivas Canyon Trail. It's about14 miles to the base of Will Rodgers then 2.1 left on Rivas which is very narrow but steep and fun. While it was a crowded holiday Sunday, it was the nicest group of fellow hikers I've experienced in 15 years.
Love this place
Awesome trail run & workout
Great views and awesome workout!!!!!!!
This was a great walk aided by a costal eddy that kept us cool. Its a great climb and lots of different terrain with a cute walk between the two parks to finish.
Loved it! This has multiple terrain and wonderful views. Hiked in June and fortunate to have had fog and overcast sky's.
I good long hike, lots off walking up and down hills. Bring food and water, this will take you a while.
If my scale was mt baldy being a 10 and runyon being a 1 i would rate this hike as a 5. Nice views. Easy to access and can do in less than 5 hrs. Not a lot of shade.
Dogs are NOT allowed after the first half mile of the hike.
Good walk. Nothing difficult. Trail very pretty on way back. Note that path closed at loop just after turnoff to Temascal Canyon - need to take turnoff about 400 yards before. Took just under 5 hours - Sunset to Sunset.
This was a great hike. Would definitely do it again.
