Favorite Hikes in Los Angeles

Favorite Hikes in Los Angeles

  • Paradise Falls Trail - Thousand Oaks, CA
  • Length: 2.5 mi round trip
  • 260 ft of elevation change
  • Easy


  • Los Leones - Pacific Palisades, CA
  • Length: 1.35 miles
  • 548 feet of elevation change
  • Moderate/Difficult - If you aren't an avid hiker, you may find this slightly difficult as it is all uphill.

  • Point Mugu State Park - Malibu, CA
  • 6.5 miles round trip
  • 1,225 ft of elevation change
  • Difficult - Even as an avid hiker, I found this quite difficult. There is no shade as all of the trees have been burned down from a previous fire as well as it is ALL uphill.

  • Runyon Canyon - Los Angeles, CA
  • 2 mile loop with 500 of elevation change
  • 2.65 mile loop with 700 of elevation change
  • 3.3-mile hike with 800 feet of elevation change
  • Moderate - A lot of this is really uphill but not terrible. If you aren't from LA, I would say this is a hike you should do to knock off your bucket list. If you are from LA, you either love or hate this hike. There is no in between

* TIP * Try to come to this hike as early as possible. Parking here is horrendous! *

  • Paradise Falls - Thousand Oaks, CA
  • 4.35 miles
  • 260 ft of elevation change
  • Mild/Moderate - I gave this both as it is mainly a downward hike so going the opposite direction might effect you if you have knee problems.

  • Escondido Falls - Malibu, CA
  • 3.7 miles
  • 708ft of elevation change
  • Mild - Slightly uphill but nothing that you should be cautious of. If you live in LA, hike this the day after it rains so the waterfall has some life to it.

  • West Observatory Trail in Griffith Park - Hollywood, CA
  • 2.1 mile (RT)
  • 540 ft of elevation change
  • Moderate - This hike has a pretty steep incline

  • Jim Morrison Cave - Malibu, CA
  • 1.2 miles
  • 600 ft of elevation change
  • Moderate/Difficult - A lot of this hike is uphill.

  • Solstice Canyon - Malibu, CA
  • 3.4 miles
  • 918 ft of elevation change
  • Mild - great place for running, pretty flat with a slight incline.
