Walking And Hiking In LA
Los Angeles is a popular hiking area due to its mountainous terrain and wonderful views over Hollywood and Downtown LA. If you love hiking, walking, or running then a visit to the Sam Merrill trail offers an energetic day out where you can be at one with nature.
Hiking on the Sam Merrill Trail
Situated in the Las Flores Canyon on the San Gabriel Mountain Range, the Sam Merrill Trail lies north of Altadena. Echo Mountain is your prize when you reach the top of the trail, an area that is proud to be a part of the Pasadena forest conservation project. You can join the Echo Mountain trail at Lake Avenue which is suitable for all abilities. For a historic trail, you can hike along the Mount Lowe Railway Trail which is one of the most scenic railroad trails in the US.
If you are not near Altadena there are other places to hike in LA, including
• Wilacre Park
• Malibu Creek State Park
• Trail Canyon Falls
• The Grotto Trail
• The Wisdom Tree
• Bronson Canyon
• Griffith Park
Smoothies and Juices in LA
Whether it be the latest trend in street food, traditional food trucks, fancy restaurants, the best craft coffee shops, or cool cold press juice bars, Los Angeles is blessed with great food and drink places. You can enjoy the best coffee in LA at The Coffee Gallery, either before or after a hike at the Sam Merrill trail or when you wind down on your LA trip with a visit to Naturewell Juice Bar Silverlake for a custom smoothie to takeout while the Cornonavirus pandemic is still in full force.
