Get the Santa Monica Mountain Conservancy Schedule Book and fine numerous hikes to fit any level of exercise (at the National Park Service at Gillette Ranch). Great fun.

“Great hiking ...”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

If you want to get away from the crowds, hustle and bustle, etc., you can drive up Temescal, park and get away from civilization in just a few short minutes. On a clear day, you can get spectacular views from Inspiration Point (just a short hike above the Will Rogers polo field.
