Wheel to the Sea
Service Project & Hike | Sycamore Canyon |  November 1st 

Intro to Wheel to the Sea
  • "Wheel" is the process of pushing a disabled person in a wheelchair, "to the Sea" is where we're going - through Sycamore Canyon to Sycamore Beach.
  • Join us for this exciting outdoor event that is especially designed to introduce individuals in wheelchairs to the natural environment by traveling dirt trails along Sycamore Canyon stream, including 11 stream crossings, through a designated wilderness area. The naturalist led hike is approximately 5 miles long and begins in the local Santa Monica Mountains and gradually descends to the ocean where we culminate the event with a family style barbecue on the beach.
  • Event is put on by the Wilderness Institute with help from the Kiwanis Club.
Cost For Wheel to the Sea
