Best Hiking Trails in LA

Hollywood Sign

Stunning views of the Hollywood sign and city overlook the Santa Monica Mountains. There are three routs, the Mt Hollywood Trail, the Canyon Drive Trail, and the Cahuenga Peak Trail. The longest hike allows you to stand behind the iconic letters, while gaining an unobstructed look at Los Angeles.

Address: Bronson Canyon Griffith Park 3200 Canyon Dr. Los Angeles, CA 90068

Los Liones

After about 20-30 minutes, you will see gorgeous views of Downtown LA and the Pacific Coast. The trail has a slight elevation, but is great for beginners.

Address: Los Liones Dr, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272

Runyon Canyon

One of the best hikes in Los Angeles because it both dog-friendly and a highly accessible for beginners and advanced hikers depending on the trail. On your way off the beaten path, enjoy the views of the Hollywood Hills.

Wisdom Tree Hike

Suppperrr steep, but short! After the high incline, prepare for stunning views an American flag that overlooks the entire city. If you bring a pen and pencil you can write affirmations and notes and leave them under rocks.
