Half Day LA Hikes
Studies show that spending at least 2 hours a week outside, in nature, has significant mental and physical health benefits! These shorter half day hikes, around 4-7 miles in length, are a nice compliment to your yoga and wellness journey and offer a chance to explore new places with fun, like minded people.
Whether you are an experienced hiker looking for a short adventure nearby, or if you have always wanted to hit the trails but don’t know where to start, these experiences are perfect for any level and close to LA.
Seven Summits of SoCal Challenge
We have selected 7 peaks surrounding Los Angeles that offer a challenging wilderness experience. These represent the highest peaks in 5 different counties and 4 ranges, plus two amazing second place peaks to round out the seven.
Difficulty levels range from Moderate to Hard but all of them reward us with amazing views and a deep connection to nature and each other. You don’t need to be an experienced outdoors person to enjoy these trails, but you do need to be reasonably fit. The hikes have been arranged in order of difficulty so that your hiking fitness improves as you move toward the more challenging and remote routes.
