Falls and a clear pool at the base, a rewarding end to the hike!

It's only the start of the semester, but do feel like you're already falling into a pool of cloudiness and uncertainty of how the semester is going to go? Well luckily, there's nothing but crystal clear water, a cool waterfall, and awesome redwoods. Join us for this escape from campus to the San Gabriel Mountains with Professor Jesse Levitt, a Peaks and Professors Favorite! The hike will be an easy 3.5 miles round trip and will even include some light rock scrambling!

Professor Jesse Levitt is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics and is always enthusiastic about the material. Aside from teaching Mathematics at USC, Professor Levitt loves to get outdoors and commonly bikes, travels, and hikes! One of his favorite trips that he can recall is he trip to New Zealand, where he got some awesome shots (peep his professor picture!)
