PEAK: Icehouse Canyon
This is an 8 mile trek with 2,600 feet elevation gain. Bring plenty of water and leave with a sense of accomplishment!
SCENERY: This beautiful 8 mile trek in the Angeles National Forest follows a steady stream that leads to sweeping views of the western San Gabriel mountain range.
FUN FACT: We’ll be passing by a half dozen ruins of stone foundations left behind from the early days of the Angeles Forest.
Professor Posatko received her BA in History at Brown University and proceeded to volunteer for Americorps, serving Skid Row's largest homeless shelter. She then received her MFA from USC's School of Cinematic Arts and has since co directed feature documentary "All Fall Down", produced critically acclaimed documentary "Ain't in It for My Health: A Film about Levon Helm", and produced many short films including Student Academy Award and BAFTA winning "Pitstop".
