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

Was pretty disappointed not going to lie...

Climbing up the big concrete slabs is quite the workout. Convenient to access. Biggest downside is how crowded it gets - I would rate this a heavily trafficked trail based on the 5 or so times I’ve been.

A solid urban style hike in Culver City / West Los Angeles area. Ideal for the fitness types and lite hikers. The stairs are quite the workout.

Heavily trafficked trail that is easy and offers cool city and beach views. I like to do it twice to stay agile for other hikes. There is still some free parking available.

I went over Memorial weekend so it was pretty crowded but I enjoyed it none the less. Go early in the morning or late afternoon because it could get pretty hot. If you're not up for climbing the steps you can take the trail up to the top. Bring water! Overall it was a great workout.

I climbed the steps twice, and then jogged down the dirt trail. climbing the stairs is a great workout both for cardio, and working your quads. I did this on an overcast day, which I recommend, even though visibility was not the best. Great little spot in the middle of the LA basin.

Multiple trails and ascents give it variety and the ability to return and have it feel fresh and new...
Stairs are a great workout...super cool views!

it's really a simple one, maybe better do a cross country running, nice views and good weather. Most important thing, don't forget put sun scream on. I've got a terrible sunburn.

Fantastic gem in the middle of the city!! Get there early.Parking can be hit or miss depending on time of day. The mid day heat can be brutal if you are not experienced. Brings lots of water and good trail shoes. Leave the flip flips for the beach.

Short and Farley easy. You can take different ways down but going up is really the only fun about it and the view at top
