Hiking in LA

East Side Loop - Griffith Park

It seems I’ve been hearing quite a bit about great LA hikes lately. Back when I lived in Arizona, I had a strong aversion to hiking, mainly because you don’t get a whole lot of visual diversity in the desert — and it’s really hot. But in California? Now, that’s an idea!

So far, I’ve really only done one true hike in Southern California and that was to the lovely waterfall in Eaton Canyon Park, which I highly recommend. That’s why I’m really excited to have discovered the Nobody Hikes in LA blog, which not only has an excellent name, but also some really great-sounding hike ideas.

Maybe if weather permits, I can even try one this weekend! What about you guys? Do you have any secret — or well-known — trails that you frequent?

    Great shot; it’s amazing what you can find out there in the world around us. There are so many amazing things – on this planet – we just have to open up to it.I also wrote an article – about my experiences with hiking – if you would like to read it. Great post and I look forward to sharing more with you:))

    Try Griffith Park or head up to some of the State Parks on the Grapevine. I always have to remind myself that although I love going other places, there is always so much to see and do in your own backyard. Particularly when you live on the “Best Coast” which is a place most of the rest of the world is trying to come to. I live in San Diego and have made a vow this year to do more exploring closer to home when I’m not on the road. Thank for the great photo.
