LOS LIONES CANYON TRAILHEAD

Best Hikes Los Angeles

One of my favorite hiking trails; the hike is moderately easy with a few inclines. If you have any injuries and have issues walking in incline or over rocks, consider a different trail or bring a supportive walking stick.

Address: 510 Los Liones Dr, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
Parking: Free. There are parking options on Los Liones Drive when coming in from Sunset Blvd.

Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook

Best Hikes Los Angeles

Looking to get a full workout in? This hike is moderately easy, but you can make it into an extreme workout once you take the famous culver city steps; you’ll be fairly winded after one session!

Address: 6300 Hetzler Rd, Culver City, CA 90232
Parking: There is street parking, but I prefer to drive to the top in order to park in the lot. They have chargers for electric cars and parking is $2/hour, which you pay at the machine with cash or card, the machine will dispense a ticket that you need to display on your dashboard.
