Gilman Peak w/ Dr. Greg Autry {Entrepreneurship}

**Please note this hike is on a FRIDAY**

Join on us on this beautiful day hike close to campus! Scenery will include views looking West over LA and OC, as well as North toward the San Gabriel Mountains. We will plan eating a picnic dinner/snack at the summit around sunset, returning to the trailhead just after dark. This means you will likely need a flashlight! Chino Hills are relatively open and close to the city though, so don’t anticipate anything too spooky. Dr. Autry is an expert on all thing space, so we may even learn something about the cosmos as they appear for the night!


  • 2 Large Water Bottles

  • Some food for you to enjoy at sunset

  • Appropriate layers for the day’s weather (remember gets colder after dark)

  • Solid shoes (running shoes are fine)

  • Flashlight (or fully charged phone)
