Best of the BEST Hiking Trails in LA

After having written that last post about juice places I figured I’d follow it up with something fitness-yyy and health related. SInce my college days at UCLA, I have been hiking different trails in the area …but find that I get bored way tooooo fast doing the same trails and hikes over and over. I mean Runyon is amazing and all, but its def a social scene filled w/ LA locals, the occasional celebrity and tons of dogs.. as far as the “scenic view” goes other than the hollywood sign you ain’t going to see much besides that or smog lol. So after a little research with friends, family, and other people I came up with the most awesome trails for ya’ll to try. I have done several of these, some of which are harder than others but nonetheless all SUPER gorgeous, amazing and totally worth it. Perfect for LA locals, hiking and health/outdoor enthusiasts or just to take your friend who is visiting from out of town. So here’s another quick list. Happy Hiking! XO

  • Point Dume- 1.3 miles
  • Solstice Canyon- 2.9 miles 
  • Escondido Falls-4 miles 
  • Malibu Creek State Park- 3.6 miles 
  • Getty View Trail-2.2 miles

And for the staples be sure to check out Temescal and Runyon Canyon if you haven’t already! 


Heres a pic right before I started one of my hikes… pretty cool view! 🙂

The Harlot Salon

After eating lunch at Gjelina (which BTW is amazing) I stumbled upon thee most charming salon… The Harlot, which is located off Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA. This salon’s location is a little tricky! So listen up, if you drive or walk too fast you might just blink and miss the awesome little ally sign and red Edison style lights that make this salon feel like you just walked into a French cottage dusted with a flirty rock edge and sophisticated sex appeal .. and you definitely DON’T want to do that! Making your way into the salon will make you want to instantly pamper yourself or at the very least play with the pink furry cuffs, or purchase one of the many novelties they sell. Upon meeting  The Harlot’s owner Marylle Koken and her rad team of stylists you can instantly tell they have the skills to hook you up with any style, cut or color you want. And a little word of advice*…if you’re around on Sundays they do $35.00 blow dry’s from 11-4pm annnnnd they even offer wine, champagne, cappuccinos, gourmet coffee and sweets..so why not spend a lazy Sunday at The Harlot…  🙂 I know I will def be there!
