July Wandering @ Dexter Park Fire Trail

Our next hike will be on Saturday, July 20 at the Dexter Park Fire Trail.

http://parks.lacounty.gov/dexter-park/

This is a simple hike with some nice hill and valley views. We’ll start as always with guided mindfulness and centering yoga, set our intention for the hike, and conclude by breaking bread and barbecuing for our dear friend Laura's birthday ... and perhaps a movie night under the stars!

Hope to see everyone everywhere. Be exceedingly well!

Wandering @ Abalone Cove Trail

It’s summer. Time to get to the coast.

We’ve been hiking forested waterfall trails thus far so we thought we’d mix it up with a beautiful shoreline hike. You can get all of the details at: alltrails.com/trail/us/california/abalone-cove-trail

The trail is described as being good for all skill levels and: “Surrounded by tide pools and a rocky beach, the trail is unique and full of scenery.”

Parking is $6 at the trail so carpooling is recommended - especially after those parking tickets at Sturtevant Falls made a couple of our wanderer’s wallets a little lighter! (*Sorry*)

As has become our routine, we’ll meet before the hike, picnic a bit, do some light yoga and mindfulness before hitting the trail and breaking bread and sharing wine at the trails end. We’ll also have a brief, open, spiritual conversation at the close of our time together.

Please let us know at info@allwanderers.org if you’re available for a carpool or need a ride!

Can’t wait to wander with you all again.

Wandering #3 - Sturtevant Falls (This time with no bears)

  • Entry Access to Sturtevant Falls Trail (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

After having to shift our plans last month due to the bear attack in Chantry Flats. We’ll be going back to Sturtevant Falls to actually hike to the falls this time.

You can get all of the details on this beautiful hike at: www.alltrails.com/trail/us/california/sturtevant-falls-trail

The trail is described as: “A leisurely hike through an enchanted portion of the San Gabriel Mountains leading to a fifty foot waterfall. The trail from Chantry Flats to Sturtevant Falls has been a popular hike for those wanting to escape the urban sprawl of Los Angeles since the early 1900's.

This is an easy hike and perfect for anyone new to hiking but be aware that the last 0.6 mile return to the parking lot is all uphill. You will need a USDF pass, you can get a day pass $5 at REI.”

As we did on our first wandering, we’ll meet before the hike, picnic a bit, do some light yoga and mindfulness before hitting the trail and breaking bread and sharing wine at the waterfall. We’ll also have a brief, open, spiritual conversation at the close of our time together.

Please let us know at info@allwanderers.org if you’re available for a carpool or need a ride!

Can’t wait to wander with you all again soon.

Wandering #2 - Sturtevant Falls Trail

To take advantage of the wet weather, we’ll be hiking the Sturtevant Falls Trail for this month’s Wandering!

You can get all of the details on this beautiful hike at: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/california/sturtevant-falls-trail

The trail is described as: “A leisurely hike through an enchanted portion of the San Gabriel Mountains leading to a fifty foot waterfall. The trail from Chantry Flats to Sturtevant Falls has been a popular hike for those wanting to escape the urban sprawl of Los Angeles since the early 1900's.

This is an easy hike and perfect for anyone new to hiking but be aware that the last 0.6 mile return to the parking lot is all uphill. You will need a USDF pass, you can get a day pass $5 at REI.”

As we did on our first wandering, we’ll meet at the trailhead, start with a short yoga session (no mats necessary), speak some words of intention for our hike, break bread and share wine at the waterfall, and have a period of spiritual discussion and reflection to close our time together.

Please let us know at info@allwanderers.org if you’re available for a carpool or need a ride!

Can’t wait to wander with you all soon.

  • Google Calendar ICS

On April 17th All Wanderers will be hosting a “Wondering” Theology on Tap event for Los Angeles based 20s and 30s at Highland Park Brewery.

It’s great.

We’ll be staking a place at 7:00pm at Highland Park Brewery (the one in Highland Park that shares space with Hermosillo), 5127 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042.

We’ll be talking about Jesus, Death, Resurrection, losing faith, finding God, suffering… you get it.

Our First Wandering - Millard Canyon Falls

Wander with us

Join us for The Church of All Wanderers first official Wandering. We’ll be taking advantage of all the recent rain and hiking to Millard Canyon Falls. It’s a relatively easy hike for most.

We’ll be discussing what it means to be an open, welcoming, questioning, and active church in Los Angeles and how to create space for a God that is bigger than we can imagine.

We hope you’ll join us!

Notes:

We’ll meet up in the parking area at 1:00pm. A $10 “Adventure Pass” is needed to park. Get it in advance and carpool if at all possible!

We’ll have some snacks but please bring water and bites if you get hungry on the trail.

There’s a rumor that we may have a post wandering dinner as well…
