I’ve never hiked a bad trail…Some are just more fun! Temescal has many trails and they’re all well-maintained. Several of the shorter trails are dog-friendly---must be leashed. Please bag the poop and pack it out. Let’s keep trails available to those of us with dogs. None of the trails have off-road bikers. Easy trails and good with families. While not... More

It's a great hike to the top but the views are worth the exercise it takes. Parking is $7 and tightly enforced. It would have gotten a five rating if wasn't for the expensive parking fee.

Located near UCLA makes it a popular, busy spot, however it still has a lovely outdoor feel for being located in the City. It's a moderate hike and you will normally see other folks during the walk so safety is not an issue. There are really terrific views and it's worth bringing your camera or I Phone for some pics....

The hike from the parking lot at Temescal is heavily traveled, but it quickly gets you into wilderness along a stream that runs most of the year. It is especially nice in winter and spring when the wild flowers are out. The trail intersects trails that can cover miles in the Santa Monica Mountains.

There is just enough of an elevation gain to make it a mild challenge. There are some wonderful views north, south, and east. Definitely worth an hour or two.

While visiting my daughter in LA, we spent a day at this park. Before our hike we picnicked under the beautiful sycamore trees. Then we chose the hike up the canyon . It was beautiful and very serene! I forgot I was in LA quite Frankly! This hike gets a little steep towards the end and the trail is very... More

My daughter and I decided to hike the trail after she got out of work. The park is easy to get to with convenient parking. Just bring the exact change. Parking fee is honor system. There are bathrooms and a friendly Ranger on sight. The trails are manageable with a little effort. When we reached the top we were treated... More

There are several trails, i took the one that leads you to the waterfall, it is a great view and also a great exercise, and its free! Make sure to take enough water and some snacks because surely you will get hungry.

The park is conveniently located on Sunset Blvd in Pacific Palisades. There are wide trails, one connecting to Will Rogers State Park. There is a very informative kiosk and trail maps are available. There is a $7 per car day use fee.
