Traffic. Smog. Star Maps. These are all things that LA is known for among natives and visitors alike. Most people forget though, that the hills surrounding this great city are filled with hiking trails to escape from the hussle & bussle of daily life. This weekend, I visited Runyon Canyon Park, which was a great little trail that leads you to awesome views of the city. Things like this not only clear your head and get your heart going, but put things into perspective. And really, even from that high up - I still couldn't see the smog! I guess LaLa Land isn't so bad after all.
If you are ever in the Hollywood area, and are looking for a great outdoor activity, I would recommend checking these trails out. And you might even recognize the park bench at the top of the trail from an episode from Seinfeld!
