I realize that when I walk more, I get in a better mood and have time to clear my head. My brain can be scattered often, so a nice hike always helps me get out of my head and into nature. It’s simple, but sometimes I make it complicated. Merp.

And here we come, HOLIDAYS!

What a past few years it has been for all of us, and the ability to gain more control of our lives starts with exercising and quality self-care. Hiking the trails of Los Angeles is good for me to release the active energy in my body, while getting into nature.

I have gone on 5 hikes in Los Angeles over the last few weeks and wanted to share the love. I was walking previously in parks and museums, but now I am upping my game on the mountain trails that the Santa Monica Mountains have to offer.

Here are some solid trails to hit up this holiday season if you are in the Los Angeles area, happy trekking!

  • Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook | 6050 Jefferson Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232
    • If you are looking for the ultimate Cali vibe hiking experience, the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook is a hit. There are challenging trails and really cool stairs that are great for calf and upper leg muscle growth. The faster you walk, the faster you’ll burn. It’s more heavily trafficked in the morning, and there are different paths to take for an easier or harder hike. Pleasant, and family-friendly, we highly recommend this trail.
  • Trebek Open Space | 2500 Nichols Canyon Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90046
    • Donated by none other than the late Jeopardy host, Alex Trebek, he is immortalized with the donation of this easy walking trail for any beginner or novice. This is the trail you go to that is less traveled, and not as popular as other trails. If you are not looking to be seen, but ready to workout, this trail is a great one to take with great viewing areas and a small unmarked parking space to make this ultra exclusive and ready to hike solo.
  • Bantam Trail | 2451 Nichols Canyon Rd, West Hollywood, CA 90046
    • When you walk beyond the pedestrian gate on Wattles Drive, you have arrived at the beginning at Bantam Trail in West Hollywood. This is a wonderful spot for a great panoramic view of the Hollywood Hills. Los Angeles has this intermediate trail for more experience hikers that like a steep walk in the beginning of your trekking.
  • Stocker Corridor Trail | Stocker St & Presidio Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90008
    • This is a great trail for kids exploration and running alike. The path is not that crowded, which is great for individual focus and creative thoughts. Clear your mind at the Stocker Corridor Trail as you walk fast and then slow down and up the windy trails.
  • The Brush Canyon Trail | Canyon Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90068
    • If you are searching for rock quarries and the Hollywood sign, your in it to win it at The Brush Canyon Trail. This is a moderate trail to hike, meaning it’s not too easy and it’s not too hard. This is the best way to get to the back of the Hollywood sign, where you can walk around the trails to get a nice selfie with the Hollywood sign in the background.
