With sunshine most days and a temperature that makes everyone want to be outside, Los Angeles is a dream for any outdoor enthusiast. Ranking second on Niche.com’s list of America’s best cities for outdoor activities, LA boasts an abundance of opportunities to explore. I mean what’s not to love?! One second you can be surrounded by the crowded, artsy streets of the city and within minutes you can be on hiking on a cliff by the beach. Los Angeles’ hiking trails are nothing short of spectacular and we wanted to share some of our favorite spots with you!
Cahuenga peak and the wisdom tree of LA
This loop trail is one of the most picturesque places to go hiking in Los Angeles. It is best known for its access and views of the Hollywood sign. In fact, local authorities wanted the site removed from GPS mapping systems due to the influx of selfie-goers looking for close-up snaps of the famous sign. But we thought this was a secret worth sharing – you just have to push yourself a little further from the main loop to reach the peak. You also have the iconic wisdom tree which draws crowds from all over the world with its interesting history and photogenic aesthetic.
