About the Location:
Portuguese Bend Reserve is a 399-acre park on Palos Verdes Peninsula with an elaborate network of trails covering beautiful ocean-facing hillsides, canyons, and ridges. With so many trails, there are several possible hikes in this park. If you don’t like to wait for big views, this is the hike for you. This in an “upside down” hike, meaning that you will start at the high end of the park, descend toward the ocean, and then hike back up, saving the bulk of the uphill for the second half of the hike. There is a sweeping overlook just a short walk from the trailhead. The hike passes vista points with scenic views looking out across the Pacific Ocean toward Catalina Island. In fact, there seem to be ocean views around just about every corner in Portuguese Bend Reserve.
