Portuguese Bend Overlook: Crenshaw Extension Trail from Del Cerro Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This hike begins in Del Cerro Park in Rancho Palos Verdes, which sits atop the Palos Verdes Peninsula at more than 1,100 feet. From the park overlook are spectacular southern views of the 1 3 distinct marine terraces that make up the peninsula and the massive 270-acre landslide area of Portuguese Bend.
The Crenshaw Extension Trail descends from Del Cerro Park into the precarious bowl-shaped canyon, still active with faults and shifting ground. A trail system winds through the rolling green hills and ancient wave-cut terraces to the shady Portuguese Bend Overlook, perched high above Portuguese Bend, Portuguese Point, and Inspiration Point."
