Join Prof. Bickers from the Physics department on a relaxing upside-down hike in the San Gabriel Mountains. We will walk five miles (and down 650 feet) on the way in to get to the 50-ft tall falls where we’ll cool off, relax, and refuel ourselves for the ascent back to the trailhead.
PEAK: Switzer Falls
SCENERY: A waterfall and lots of pools
FUN FACT: We’ll pass by the ruins of a 130-year-old wilderness resort!
PROFESSOR: Gene Bickers
RATE MY PROFESSOR: "Prof. Bickers really cares about his students, and his passion for the material will make you love it, too."
Prof. Bickers’ research focuses on condensed matter theory and high-temperature superconductors. He also teaches the intro Physics classes here at USC and he’s prepared to answer any questions you may have about the universe!
