Hiking Near Los Angeles

Though it might not readily come to mind, Los Angeles has got its fair share of wilderness to explore. I know what you’re thinking: concrete jungle doesn’t count. But believe me, it’s easier than you might think to escape into California’s rolling hillsides. Check it out:

Topanga Canyon is a great option to get out and about and explore some of Los Angeles less traveled. Starting at Pacific Palisades’ Los Liones Drive, leave the car in the parking lot and head up East Topanga Fire Road and head toward the Parker Mesa Overlook. Expect switchbacks and a steep grade—the first two miles sees a 1300 foot elevation gain, so though tough, provides a beautiful outlook of one of Los Angeles favorite neighborhoods. (7 miles round-trip)

Will Rogers State Park’s Inspiration Point Trail is great day hike just off Sunset Boulevard. About 6 miles in length, the trail winds along the private ranch of the Will Rogers Estate and offers eucalyptus lined strolls through lush natural gardens.

Griffith Park trails are easy and easily offer some of the best viewing in all of Los Angeles. The West Trail Loop offers the best panoramic sweeps of the city and it’s from this 2.5 mile trek that you’ll be able to see views of the Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood sign, and the greater Los Angeles basin. The adjoining Brush Canyon Trail is only about 2 miles and offers hikers some tranquility away from the fury of Los Angeles and also offers panoramic views of Mount Hollywood Drive as well as some choice picnicking spots.
