My boyfriend and I are very active and were looking for nice places to hike and see the city from. All our local uber drivers and servers suggested Temescal Canyon since it's the closest and a fairly quick hike. After doing the waterfall trail up to the top and the sunset trail down, I can say it's "quick" considering the... More

Love this place for a quick hike before work or if in need of a nature fix in a pinch. Steep elevation gain rewarded with views of ocean and DTLA. Easy to find and plenty of parking. Hint: Park on sunset Blvd. To avoid $10 parking fee.

We hiked the Temescal Rivas Canyon trail to Will Rogers today which was a nice trai and we had some nice views of the ocean and LA. There was quite some dog poop on the first part of the trail which we have not seen on other trails before.... but what we did not like was that once you are... More

I'm always looking for hiking trails that are dog-friendly..this is up to a point (see photo). Nerver-The-less, it's a good place for all kinds of hikers; novice to adventurous...Plus, it has a conference center and cabins for people who want to rent int out for group or company retreats. There is a fee ($10) to park but there is plenty... More

Amazing that this park is a 20-minute drive from Venice--and a world away! There are lots of trails, most of which are quite steep and will get you to the top of a hill with amazing views of L.A. and the ocean on one side, and beautiful green canyons and rolling hills on the other. There are some nice picnic... More

if one's trying to escape into nature, there are other places to go to. It was busy ... on one trail, in both directions.

Temescal Gateway Park is just off Sunset Blvd. / or PCH Hwy. 1 and is easy accessible and has lots of parking, paid. Trails go right up the hills into the coastal mountains. Trails are graded. You'll get spectacular coastal views and Catalina Island. Leads into Topanga Parklands & you can hike forever - bring extra water & energy! Enjoy.... More

I’ve never hiked a bad trail…Some are just more fun! Temescal has many trails and they’re all well-maintained. Several of the shorter trails are dog-friendly---must be leashed. Please bag the poop and pack it out. Let’s keep trails available to those of us with dogs. None of the trails have off-road bikers. Easy trails and good with families. While not... More

It's a great hike to the top but the views are worth the exercise it takes. Parking is $7 and tightly enforced. It would have gotten a five rating if wasn't for the expensive parking fee.

Located near UCLA makes it a popular, busy spot, however it still has a lovely outdoor feel for being located in the City. It's a moderate hike and you will normally see other folks during the walk so safety is not an issue. There are really terrific views and it's worth bringing your camera or I Phone for some pics....
