Hiking, Los Angeles
Concierge.com's insider take:
Nobody walks in L.A., but they do hike. There are great trails along the Santa Monica Mountain bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the forested Angeles Crest. Or you can head uphill into Hollywood's Runyon Canyon, where somewhat disheveled celebrities can often be glimpsed walking their dogs off-leash. In Beverly Hills, there's Franklin Canyon. For information and maps of these and other trails, check out www.latrails.com/hike, or contact the Sierra Club (213-387-4287; www.angeles.sierraclub.org) for information about its organized walks.
