There are a lot of different routes to take here and having this app helps navigate so you can explore and still find your way. If you want to get some amazing views of Los Angeles, this is a great hike for you. Just know, as is true with any hiking trails really, that the length of the trail sometimes depends on what path you choose. The estimated mileage listed here may be true for a tiny portion of the trails, but it's easy to accidentally step off that specific trail and go on a longer (or shorter) hike.
E D. on Kenneth Hahn Recreation Area
easy and well marked route with nice city views. it's a nice bit of the outdoors in the middle of the city.
The trail is okay, however if you do the trail and go to the lake it's a perfect nature day right in the middle of the city. This is one of LA's hidden treasures, bring a blanket and make a picnic by the lake (pond). Parking is free on weekdays.
Kenneth Hann Park is great for mountain bike training. It's hills and many extensive technical curves are sometimes difficult to maneuver; however, with extreme caution, a rider can overcome and learn from such trails. Great for an early/ afternoon hike/mountain bike ride! This is what I like to call my "back yard" for training purposes.
