I call it Silver Trails. A nice, casual, golden hour hike, above the 5 freeway. A quiet, winding dirt trail with magical lighting, views and energy all around. Perfect for those in need of a long walk.
THIS TRAIL IS GREAT. you can go one of two ways at the beginning... and the views rule. super serene looking down like a fudile lord on the freeway
We went on the full 6 mile path all the way around the park, down to dodger stadium and to the reservoir and so on. Some nice views, but not the prettiest trail. Many nicer ones in Griffith Park.
This is one of the more peaceful and easy hikes I've done in LA. The views are expansive and it's lush green all around. The trees framing the sides of the trail at some points give a beautiful backdrop. There's also a great view of downtown LA about a quarter of the way into the loop.
love the shooting range at the police academy. great view of the city from behind nice looking south at LA instead of always looking north. careful of young drunk cholos!! trying to be blood in blood out hahahah!!
