Riassunto: Described is a route enabling a continuous through-hike of the length of the Santa Monica Mountains as well as the shorter Backbone Trail connecting Will Rogers State Park with Point Mugu State Park. The guide is consistent with all known contemporary regulations. The range extends east though some urban areas through Elysian Park near the Los Angeles Civic Center. A bird may travel over the high ridges and peaklets of the Santa Monica Mountains in a flight of 54 miles in a few hours; for us, about 6 or 7 nights. The 100 Mile Route technically starts at Elysian Park near downtown L.A. meandering 113 miles on variety of terrain -- mostly on trail tread , one of them the Chumash trail over 7,000 years in use. The 100 Mile Route leads through areas of numerous jurisdictions city, county and state parks, the Santa Monica Conservancy, National Park Service, through corridors adjoining private land and along some roads and sidewalks, through some urban areas, designated wilderness areas over and through many ridges, canyons, streams, ponds, historical sites and over 12 peaklets with awesome ocean and/or valley views. The three-hole-ring binding enables updating, insertion, replacement and duplication of all pages. The trail guide describes a route starting from the steps of the City Hall in Los Angeles then briefly through the oldest parts of L.A. including old Chinatown and near the classic Mexican-Spanish sites of the 18th Century before climbing up trails on eastern flank of the Santa Monica Mountains to the final descent on the pre-ancient Chumash Trail to the Pacific Ocean near Point Mugu. Supplements include: Jurisdictions and Site information, Gear and Equipment, GPS Wayponts, Transportation, A Guide for Parts of the Backbone Trail Not Covered in the 100 Mile Route.
