*EDIT: This trip has been rescheduled from Sunday, March 31 to Saturday, April 6!*

Join us for a moderate 6 mile hike at the beautiful Bear Canyon, complete with scenic views of Switzer Falls, one of L.A.’s most famous waterfalls.

We will be hiking with Eric Junker, a Design professor here at Roski, with a possible guest appearance from Professor Junker’s son, Rye, who is just as talented an artist as his dad! Professor Junker’s work ranges from film posters to restaurants to murals (check out his work on the wall here at Roski!)
