Great for hiking, mountain biking, great untouched place in Los Angeles area. Plenty of different hiking trails so you can choose depending on your experience. Keep an eye out as sometimes the mountain bikers are on the same hiking trails.

Technical but challenging ride. If you are looking for a gentle fire road, this is NOT the one.

if you hike this park from point A to point B it's nearly 5 miles...there are 4 steep hills that will be a moderate challenge...you have multiple work out stations too. and you can jog around that bowl loop a couple of times to add more miles to your work out...explore the whole park...you'll find a long trail leading to a steep hill along la brea...and the real loop around the whole park through the trails will be 5 or more miles...check out the pic I posted.

My wife and I walk this all the time. If you want to hike it on a weekend and save the $6 parking fee, there's a back entrance. Park in the small city park north of Stocker and east of La Brea. Cross at the light.

This hike is so gorgeous and takes you a world away from the daily hustle and bustle. It has many trails for all types of hiking levels and the most breathtaking views from Downtown LA, Century City, Wilshire Corridor all the way to Pacific Ocean. It's truly a secret gem in the city and makes you forget it's right next to La Cienega and it's traffic. Hiking boots and trekker recommended.
