Amazing panoramic views. They are restoring a lot of the trails right now but still quite enjoyable.

Great work out & training for challenging peaks that you want to summit. I trained on the 282 stairs multiple times before Half Dome once a week for 3 weeks. Oh, boy the stairs did condition me. I completed Half Dome. I have returned, training for Mt Whitney in October.

not much of a hike but enough of a work out (if u go up a couple times) The Culver City stairs are sure to leave your buns sore!

The app was not great keeping up with turns so we went out of our way a few times. Don’t use the app map on this one, it was more intuitive to just follow the trails. A lot of cute little trails scrunched in together, nice for a little trail running and getting some stairs in. Very crowded. Would do again for a quick walk about. Also, really cool views of the city.

Great workout, great views, but the trails seem to run out quickly. I often have to walk them multiple times...but it’s all good because that means more opportunities to see rabbits, squirrels and other little creatures.

7/30 with Mariah in Culver City

Nice place if you want to do a stair master out in Mother Nature!!!! Loved it cause I could feel the burn in my bum as I’m also putting in steps, what more can you ask for. The only thing I can say is there is no shade and if you like to make sure you get a more intense work out you have to do 3-4 times up the stairs and then around down the hill to go back up to make sure you get 3-4 miles.

This is a really good workout, it has stairs almost all the way up. it's a challenge if you're not used to that. very little if no shade. You can also go around the mountain from the top. That's really fun.

Not too long, 45 minutes back and forth, the stairs are very tired, it is not recommended to bring children under 6 years old, come back is a shape of the slope, many people, very lively

Charming hike that can either be done via stairs or on a dirt incline path

Great hike to do after work. You can pick concrete path, dirt path or go up the stairs. Lots of people so it’s safe for you to do alone. There are restrooms at the top but they close at sunset. Park at the bottom, it’s metered but free after 6. I like to park a bit further to get the extra mile in since this is a fairly short hike. You can do this 3-4 times to get a better workout in.
