There are many access points to these gorgeous mountains that keep me sane amid the bustle of Santa Monica.
From Temescal Canyon Road, you can do a 1 hr, bun-burning loop up Temescal Canyon and down via the Temescal Ridge Trail. It's pretty hard to get lost. There's an updated map posted at the entrances and a few trail markers along the way. Restrooms near the parking area.
There are also longer trails good for hiking and or trail-running. A long approx 14 mile loop can start or end from Temescal or Will Rogers (via the Backbone Trail).
Gorgeous vistas over the ocean. Take water; it's much warmer up there compared to the beach.
