Palos Verdes Estates is located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and is bounded to the north by Redondo
Beach and to the south by San Pedro. The peninsula is made up of
four cities: Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes
and Palos Verdes Estates.
Gone were the early days of California in which Rancho
de los Palos Verdes was divied out like so much of the soon-to-be state
was, as land grant deeds. Don Delores Sepulveda received this parcel inn
1822 for his support of the Mexican Revolution. He held the land
for 60 years.
Today, tourists flock to see the splendor of the ocean
and to enjoy the natural resources. One way to discover its treasures is
through docent- led nature hikes. Los Serenos de Point Vicente docents
conduct guided tours of the Ocean Trails Project. The walks begin at the
public parking lot at the end of La Rotonda Drive off of Palos Verdes
Drive South. Docents lead hikers through paved trails along a bluff and
a habitat corridor. They provide information about the history,
geology, marine ecology and habitat restoration work of the Ocean Trails
project. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and bring a small bottle
of water. Tours last approximately two hours. No reservations required.
