Hollywood Steps Circuit
by dogdocla on May 25, 2009
Hollywood, California, United States
Hiking | 1.8 miles
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!

This is a leisurely, easy hike through a truly enchanted portion of the San Gabriel Mountains that leads to a fifty foot waterfall. From the trailhead at Chantry Flat you descend a paved service road into Big Santa Anita Canyon to a well maintained trail that skirts alongside the main stream. Along the way you pass private cabins that have been there for years and a strange system of concrete check dams...

Hiking | 4.8 miles
Our trek began at Bear Mountain State Park where we started to hike around Roe Pond. As we entered the first mile we experienced a steady but easy incline. As we entered the second and third mile we experienced a growing incline, where we had to crawl up large boulders/rocks to get to our check points. When we reached the peak, we hiked approximately 1,300 ft. vertically. The trek down was a...

Hiking | 5.3 miles
Portuguese Bend Reserves is part of the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve.   This is a hike that starts at Ladera Linda Park.  When the gate is open you can park closer to the trails.  You start at the edge of  the Forrestal Reserve, cross Klondike canyon, and head up the Burma Road Trail.  On the way back down, I took several of the side trails, including the Eagles Nest, Water Tank, Peppertree,...

The canyon runs in a general north-south direction, and is distinguished by sandy washes sprinkled with Ironwood, Smoke Trees, and Palo Verde.

David and I were ready to try some snow camping in Yosemite this weekend, but the weather report had other plans.  It was set to rain on the first day in Yosemite, and we decided that camping in snow while being rained on did not sound like a good use of a weekend (hopefully we will get some clear skies soon!).  Since we had psyched ourselves up for a backpacking trip for...

One of my all-time favorite hikes. This hike is well documented so there is nothing more I can add, other than it's a hike everyone should experience once. Hiked it this time with my dad, son (age 9) and daughter (age 8).

A beautiful morning hike on Father's Day in complete solitude. After leaving the house at 5am while everyone slept, I headed for the Gap to ascend Mt. Tammany on a Hazy, Hot and humid morning. Taking the Red Trail to the Blue Trail and back along Dunnfield Creek to the Parking Lot offers an awesome vista of the gap during the aggressive ascent up Mt. Tammany. While a bit humid,...

Stinson Beach, California, United States
Hiking | 15.2 miles
I've been meaning to do this hike for quite some time. In addition to everything nice about it (the flowers, the views, the climb, the length, the company), it just seemed meaningful.Since several of us were considering that hike, it was just a matter of picking a date. Barbara and Pavla called it, and there we went.We started on the Stinson Beach parking lot shortly after 9:30 and took Dipsea trail to...
