Over the years I have hiked several of the usual hiking paths around LA mostly because I love getting outside and being active but as an ex-pat, Western Canadian, I have always found desert hiking to be less like nature than the green and lush...More

Amazing that this park is a 20-minute drive from Venice--and a world away! There are lots of trails, most of which are quite steep and will get you to the top of a hill with amazing views of L.A. and the ocean on one side,...More

if one's trying to escape into nature, there are other places to go to. It was busy ... on one trail, in both directions.

I’ve never hiked a bad trail…Some are just more fun! Temescal has many trails and they’re all well-maintained. Several of the shorter trails are dog-friendly---must be leashed. Please bag the poop and pack it out. Let’s keep trails available to those of us with dogs....More

This would be a good choice and not too far from Beverly Hills. Another great hike, but further away up PCH is La Jolla Canyon.
