Hike through the City of Angels
One of the reasons locals love Los Angeles so much is that they’re always outdoors. Whether it’s the beach, mountains or desert, LA’s inhabitants are always out and about, and more and more visitors are heading out under the sunny blue skies as well. Hiking is a great way to see the best of LA, whether it’s the Santa Monica Mountains, Baldwin Hills, Hollywood Hills or the mighty San Gabriel Mountains. Here are some of our favourite hikes…
By no means a wilderness experience, nor an area for those in search of some solitude, the Runyon Canyon loop is a great hike for people-watching and provides beginner hikers with the opportunity to check out the Hollywood Hills, see million-dollar mansions and take in priceless views of the iconic Hollywood sign and sunset strip.
Franklin Canyon Park
Located near Benedict Canyon at the geographical centre of Los Angeles, the Discovery Trail in Franklin Canyon Park offers an easy stroll around the reservoir with plenty of opportunities for viewing birds and other wildlife. It’s also the starting point for some more taxing trails, including Hastain Trail, which offers views all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
Will Rogers State Park
Just off Sunset Boulevard, start your hike along the Rustic Canyon loop just behind the main ranch house. Along the way, you’re sure to get distracted by the detour to Inspiration Point but trust us, it’s well worth it. This side route offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, LA and the Santa Monica Mountains. After the hike, spend some time strolling around the park.
