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! 🙂
