El Dorado Park two mile nature trail
El Dorado Park two mile nature trail
Long Beach, California, United States (11.4 miles away)
Easy: 1.8 miles, 1 hour or less
El Dorado Park, Long Beach, California USA

These trails are hidden gems in the busy city of Long Beach. You would never know that you were not lost in hidden woods, rather then less then 1/2 mile from a busy freeway. The nature center itself is very good, featuring a little menagerie of local wildlife, and educational things for children. They sell items, and they occasionally have special...
Stargazing in Griffith Park and the Observatory
Stargazing in Griffith Park and the Observatory
Los Feliz, California, United States (13.6 miles away)
 
Easy: 20 miles, Full day
Plus the L.A. zoo, hiking and rides on historic trains, a carousel and ponies

As the largest municipal park with urban wilderness areas in the country, Griffith Park is easily a destination in itself. Much more than a city park, this urban parkland has numerous trails and historic attractions sprawled over 4,210 acres. Elevations range from 384 to 1,625 feet above sea level, and landscape changes from coastal sage brush to oak...
Griffith Park - Hollywood Sign Hike
Griffith Park - Hollywood Sign Hike
Los Angeles, California, United States (14.7 miles away)
 
Easy: 4.3 miles, 1-3 hours

A great easy to moderate hike if you are visiting or new in town with great views of the Hollywood sign. The total hike is a little over 4 miles and will take about 1-2 hours depending on your hiking speed, resting or taking in the beautiful views. At the top is a great 360 degree view behind the famous sign.
Eaton Canyon
Eaton Canyon
Altadena, California, United States (15.1 miles away)
 
Easy: 3.8 miles, 1-3 hours
A short trip into Eaton Canyon for an accessible waterfall. Great wildflowers in the spring, too!

This is a relatively easy less-than-four mile hike to a 40-foot waterfall. Its proximity to civilization and short distance make this a very popular trail for casual hikers, and it can get very crowded on the weekends and on hot summer days - but it's worth a visit even if you have to fight through crowds - especially when spring wildflowers carpet...
Orchard Camp via Mt Wilson Trail
Orchard Camp via Mt Wilson Trail
Sierra Madre, California, United States (15.3 miles away)
 
Moderate: 6.9 miles, Half day
The first half of the trail to Mount Wilson, an old camp used by Mr Wilson himself.

The trail was originally built by Benjamin Davis Wilson, who was the grandfather of General George S. Patton around 1852. The trail followed an old Indian trail and as legend has it, was used by the Spaniards to hunt for Grizzly Bears. Ben Wilson wanted to find better wood on the mountain, but was unable to locate any so the trail reverted to...
Monrovia Canyon Park
Monrovia Canyon Park
Monrovia, California, United States (17.0 miles away)
 
Easy: 5.8 miles, 1-3 hours
Surprises at every turn

We took a forked trip to hike the two canyons. One was short, almost too short but in retrospect a way to start experiencing the alive canyons with the spider webs hanging from branches to rocks and filtering the sunlight. Or the pleasant surprised of seeing a small rattle snake on the concrete walkway out of the forest. The early morning hike gave...

Hollywood Steps Circuit
by dogdocla on May 25, 2009
Hollywood, California, United States
Hiking | 1.8 miles (14.4 miles away)
There are six sets of granite steps in Beachwood Canyon, below the Hollywood Sign. These historic landmarks were built in the 1920's when Hollywoodland was created, and they link high streets and low streets in the hills. This trail links them all together for a good cardio workout that takes about an hour. Go in the morning or evening to avoid the heat!

Runyon canyon hike
by drnantu on Mar 11, 2012
Los Angeles, California, United States
Hiking | 2.8 miles (14.9 miles away)
I went to this famous trail with two other friends. I was told that there might be celebrity sightings. Well, we did see quite a few good looking men and women, but no famous faces. The trail starts very gentle grade. Then, we could see the Hollywood sigh and the downtown high-rises. The view is magnificent, far stretching to the sea. The last quarter mile, we came down to the mountain. The...

Hike from Lake Hollywood to Cahuenga Peak
by wakerider on Jan 25, 2009
Universal City, California, United States
Hiking | 2.9 miles (15.7 miles away)
This is a trail that goes the long way around to Cahuenga Peak. I took some pictures along the way to show the nice views.Cahuenga Peak needs to be saved from developers. The City has until April 30, 2010 to raise $12.5 million to buy the peak and make it part of Griffith Park.  Here is a link to a site with more information about saving the peak.  http://www.savehollywoodland.org

Whittier, California, United States
Hiking | 4.0 miles (7.5 miles away)
I've just recently started hiking and have gone to Turnbull Canyon a few times, because it is pretty close to home, so I can get in a hike and be home in just a couple of hours.  Lots of families, mountain bikers, joggers and hikers come here and even though you will often find yourself alone on the trail, it won't last for long.  Once you near the top, you'll have some nice views...

El Dorado Nature Center, Long Beach

Royal Oak Mobile Home Park, California, United States
Hiking | 0.0 miles (11.4 miles away)
I took this short trip just to stretch my legs earlier today.  I read about the El Dorado Nature Center online and decided to give it a go. The nature center is a wilderness area nestled in the middle of Long Beach between the 605 FWY and the river trail.  It's an easy walk with just enough wilderness to make one feel as if they were out of the city.The nature center...

Monrovia Canyon Park Waterfall Hike
by justinjdoucette on Aug 08, 2009
Monrovia, California, United States
Hiking | 4.0 miles (16.5 miles away)
Monrovia Canyon Park is located in the foothills above the town of Monrovia.  This is a relatively easy hike that can be completed in under two hours.  The path is mostly shaded by tree cover.  The climax is the waterfall at the end of the hike!  The only downfall (in my opinion) is the number of people.  So if you looking for a quick morning hike and don't mind the crowds, this...
Griffith park 4/29/09
by higginsrob on May 28, 2009
Hiking | 4.1 miles (14.1 miles away)
This is a great trail off the normal path.  You should probably be somewhat athletic, and wear pants if you don\'t like plants and things touching your legs. Point of interest: On the path I met a mountain biker that said he just saw a mountain lion!  Maybe I'm not the brightest crayon in the box, but I went looking for it.  Unfortunately I didn't get to see the big cat.

Rancho Palos Verdes, California, United States
Hiking | 6.1 miles (17.5 miles away)
I wanted to revisit a trail I'd passed (but not hiked) before, called the Glory Trail. It turned out to be a heavy climb on a hike that involves some road walking, but the view at the end was quite beautiful.

The Lone Tree

Outpost Estates, California, United States
Hiking | 2.3 miles (14.7 miles away)
I had been looking at this tree everyday for months while I worked at the Warner Bros lot in Burbank. If you have ever driven down Olive Ave/Barham in Burbank you are sure to see a lone tree at the top of the Barham Pass. The tree is all by itself and begs at you to come find it, and so I did. Taking the Hollywood Ridge Trail which is used a lot...
