Step Up to the Best Intermediate Hikes in Los Angeles

One of the best aspects of living in L.A. is outdoor access. The beach, mountains and desert are all within striking distance. Hiking is always an option, whether it’s the Santa Monica Mountains, Griffith Park or the mighty San Gabriel Mountains. We previously covered the Top 10 Easy Hikes in L.A. Now we'll learn about eight of the best intermediate hikes in L.A. County that will yield prized views and get your heart pumping, but won’t require a day off from work to recover.

1. Carry your cell phone with you in case of emergency. The signal can be limited in the mountains, but in case you run into trouble, the phone is your best friend.
2. Carry plenty of water because trails often have little shade and it can get hot.
3. Wear sunscreen and a hat. Even if the sky starts out overcast, sun often breaks through clouds.
4. Stay to the center of the trail to limit contact with plants like poison ivy and wildlife like rattlesnakes and tarantulas.

But we live in Los Angeles, where there are all sorts of businesses that cater to creative kids. Many offer drop-in options, which means zero commitment. And no advance planning is required. So whether it’s throwing a clay pot, crafting a puppet or decorating a cake, little artists can get their muse on.
