A Poetic Walk with Nikki Darling

featuring a To-Go Vegan Hiking Lunch by Lisa Cole


Nikki Darling is a badass artist, just like you. Razz is her little companion gifted by the universe. You are invited to join Nikki and Raspberry Beret as they lead you on a poetic walk where each hiker is encouraged to be 'present' (please no phones or social media). Bring a small notebook, tape and colored pencils and pens. If you don't have pencils we can all share.

Lisa Cole (@hungryrightmeow) cooks delicious vegan meals. Her food is clever, colorful and always makes us smile. For this one-of-a-kind Waystation Trail, Lisa is preparing a special lunch for each hiker to carry along their journey. You don’t want to miss this!

Waterman Mountain Loop

Distance: 6.2 miles
Elevation: 1,225 feet
Duration: Day Hike
9AM - 5PM

The middle San Gabriels are always shockingly remote and this trail is no exception. Honestly: the hike is a subtle showstopper. There's something inherently cinematic about this mysterious loop through incense cedar, piles of boulders and an abandoned ski village. Wonder, decay and menace –– it’s like stepping into a Spielberg or Miyazaki film
