Overview

LA TIMES BEST SELLER! Day Hikes Around Los Angeles includes 82 hikes in and around a 50-mile radius of the city. Now in its fourth edition, this hiking guide has made the LA Times Bestseller list. Outdoor people living in the city will find the book essential. This comprehensive guide provides access to the green areas in the metropolitan area, including coastal walks, mountain climbs, and solitary retreats in addition to well-known sites, such as a hike that treks up to the ¿HOLLYWOOD¿ sign.
Despite the imminent presence of the Los Angeles metropolis, there are thousands of acres of natural, undeveloped land with miles of hiking trails, from the coast to the interior mountains and valleys. Day Hikes Around Los Angeles includes a cross-section of scenery, ecosystems, and difficulty levels. Highlights include sweeping views from the ocean to the city, magnificent rock formations, waterfalls, bluffs, ridge walks, weather-sculpted canyons, old ranch roads, architectural ruins, filming locations, large state parks, and cool shady retreats. All hikes can be completed during the day (although map sources and references are included for extending hikes).
Each hike includes a detailed map, accurate driving and hiking directions, and a quick overview of distance/time/elevation. Larger overall maps show the hike locations in the greater metropolitan area. The summaries allow the hiker to choose a trail appropriate to their ability and desire.
Companion hiking guides, also in the Day Hike Books series, include Day Hikes Around Ventura County, Day Hikes Around Santa Barbara, and Day Hikes On the California Central Coast.

    WOW. glad I purchased!

    Hi everyone. Very glad I purchased this book. I was a bit concerned when I (after purchase) realized the copyright was 2003 but clearly the accuracy is spot on. I love to hike and am a Southern Cali girl so I was excited to find all the trails this book had to offer...many I hadn't known about before. Believe it or not, there ARE still places of nature carefully, safely, tucked away from the city.

    This book is a great guide and will accurately show you details of each hike and the elevation, which is great for those who really want a challenge. I was pleased while on my first book-inspired excursion to meet another hiker who said she also owned and used the book regularly. Hike on. Rock on. Live on!

    Buy it...you won't be disappointed.

    ~JAH
