Join Peaks All-Star Professor Rebecca Broyer on a challenging 10 mile summit of Tri-Peaks, the gem of the Santa Monica Mountains. The challenging and winding trail features some steep ascents, rock scrambles, and wonderful sweeping views over Malibu, the Pacific Ocean, the valley below, and Los Padres National Forest.
SCENERY: Open ocean and sweeping views of the rolling Santa Monica Mountains.
FUN FACT: The trail begins at Satwiwa, a Native American cultural site. The area was burned by a fire in 2013 but several wet winters have quickly helped re-green the landscape.

Dr. Broyer, a mainstay in the Chemistry Department at USC, is primarily focused on organic chemistry inside the classroom, but has vast and numerous outdoors interests outside of the classroom. Find her hiking, backpacking, surfing, or snowboarding - regardless of the season, she'll be spending her free time outdoors.
