I don't know why, but I am continuously drawn to the walking trails near Highridge Park in Rancho Palos Verdes.It is located off of Highridge which is off of Hawthorne Boulevard. Turn up the hill at the gas station/car wash. You park your car there and then walk across the field to the beginning of the trail that takes you behind the houses on the horse trail. Just follow the white, split rail fence. It is wooded and quiet and private. It's my favorite walk. Or, you can park at Highridge just before Ocean Terrace and take the trail that goes behind the houses on the nonview side. That too, is a private and quiet trail that I treasure. Both trails I have mentioned eventually take you to stunning vistas of the ocean and give you such a sense of serenity, it is priceless. I have to say I have NEVER run into anyone on either trail!
