Living in a city like Los Angeles, we're lucky enough to have nearly perfect weather all year round! That means there's no excuse not to get outdoors, and explore one of the many natural areas that are spread throughout the city.
We asked our trainers to share some of their favorite hiking spots they frequent when they're not in the studio training on a megaformer.
Red Rock in Topanga Canyon. It can be anywhere from 30 min -2 hours and the trees and rocks up there in the mountains are magical.
Sandstone Peak in Ventura. Take PCH all the way past Malibu and then 30 minutes up. Best view of LA. Its a pretty easy hike too!

Parker Mesa! It's a longer hike but not to up hill so great spot to take family and kids. At the end of the hike you get a 360 view of la and the ocean.
I'm currently enjoying Baldwin Hills hike in Culver City because it's very close and has a ton of stairs (great for the booty). I also enjoy Murphys Ranch Trail in the Pacific Palisades. This one has a set of 500 stairs!
The Bronson street entrance to Griffith park to the back of the Hollywood sign. No phone service and horses = perfection
It used to be Runyon Canyon, but now living so close to Griffith Park, I change my answer to the less heavily trafficked Griffith Park.
Will Rogers State Park
I really love to do the Culver City stairs because it has a great view of the city at the top and it feels more "hike-y" and less crowded than the Santa Monica stairs.
Escondido Falls, Malibu!
