This is a very popular trail frequented by fitness types and lite hikers on the Westside. Take the Culver City stairs all the way to the top and be rewarded a panoramic view of LA. The stairs are deceivingly a solid workout and will have you relieved once you reach the top. I would say this is the Westside's version of Runyon Canyon a bit. If you are really trying to get your workout on, take the stairs up and run down the paved road to the trailhead and do the stairs again.

Great place to run, walk, or simply relax with the views. You can actually drive your car up the zig zagging road and park at the top for $5 if you are just looking for a place to hang out and sight see.

Afterwards treat yourself to the Mexican fruit stands which are typically at the trailhead.

Parking: Tons of free street parking at the trailhead but can be limited especially on the weekends.

Well the hike is great,but I was disappointed with the city. We parked on Jefferson blvd we walked to the entrance of the park. The street was full of trash. The city should clean it and fine whoever leaves trash behind! Its such a bad impression of Culver City.

stairs are killer goodd view on clear day nice family hike

The stairs are a killer work out!

always a lightweight breezy walk to a small stair climb that makes you pay for the view

Went Tuesday and there was No parking fee :)
Easy to follow and not a lot of people was there :)
Went with my dog and it was good :)

Nice urban hike with great views of the Baldwin Hills, Santa Monica Bay, DTLA, and the Inglewood Oil Field.

Pay to park. Cash only! Surprise

If you are looking for something close by, easily accessible and a nice, easy couple of miles this is a great hike. You are kind of near to the road and it’s definitely not secluded. But there are only a few hikes I can make it to before it’s dark after work and this is the one I find myself doing most. We usually only run into a few other people. This Friday evening I only ran into one other group. The upper portion gets a bit overgrown with wildflowers and grass in the spring. It’s quite long now so if that bothers you stick to the lower trail.

This is a really easy hike to go on for beginners, and you get a really good view. There is a summer camp at the top + the Culver steps if you feel like tackling that.

Easy and safe hiking with my little doggie

A west side oasis, great trails for all skill levels.

Great, accessible workout in the city. Plenty of free street parking when I go on weekdays. Bathrooms, drinking fountain, and nice city views found at the top. I like to take the stairs up and the switchback trail down. It's a little crowded, but that doesn't really matter since it's just a city stairs workout.

Nice hike, nice views

there's a parking lot and the trail is nice and easy for running.

Went today with my husband and 8 month old baby and loved it !

Good but packed. Once you've done it, not really much to return for unless you're making it a part of your fitness routine. Fantastic photo vantage.

Nice quick workout. Beautiful views as you can see in all the pics. It was around 53 degrees outside when we started. We got there around 8:15 AM and it was packed full of people! Drove to the top and only about 3-4 vehicles parked in the lot. I guess everybody wants to use the park but nobody wants to pay to park there. Maybe that's why I seen a ranger on the trail with his ticket book in hand. They need to make money somehow to keep it up. It costs $2.00 per hour to park there or $6.00 for all day.

Anyhow, it was a 45 minute drive to the park from OC but I would definitely go back there again.

Great trail for family hiking with great view!!

Stairs are a good workout with a nice view.

Stairs are a killer for beginners! But this is great for a quick workout.

This is my favorite “local” trail yet! I love that there are different trails for every fitness level!!

Hike this right before sunset and watch it at the top! it is beautiful with a beautiful view of the whole city and the hollywood sign and the ocean and I am definitely doing this again.

I’ve hiked this trail and Culver City steps many times. Great place to get a quick workout near home.

Although parking is a plus across the street, I wouldn't recommend hiking here at night. There are a ton of bugs and I left with like a dozen bites. My finger even started to swell and then my whole hand. I have no idea what bit me. It's a nice spot but again, bring insect repellant.

Great! Just be ready to pay $6 parking on the weekend which I didn't mind it was worth it.

Traffic was probably heavier due to the holiday, but I’m not even mad. Holy jeez what a view!!!
