Overview


With time, health, and pin money at a premium, this handy guide helps Angelenos get back to nature without going out of town. From Long Beach on the coast to Cleveland National Forest to the south and Ojai to the north, it details 60 hikes and walks within roughly an hour’s drive of Los Angeles, encouraging even the most time-starved trekkers to get on the trails and get healthy. Extensive at-a-glance information makes it easy to choose the perfect hike based on length, difficulty, scenery, or on a specific factor such as hikes good for families, runners, or birding. Each trail profile includes maps, directions, driving times, nearby attractions, and other pertinent details. Having lived in just about every area of Los Angeles, author Laura Randall provides key in-the-know information about traffic patterns, the best times to hike, how to avoid expensive parking fees, and more.
