When you’re in Los Angeles and are looking for some fantastic views of the city while also enjoying fresh air and a mild hike, Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area is a great retreat. This LA park is covered in coastal sage, offers a fishing lake, lotus pond, picnic sites, a volleyball court, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, a playground and several hiking trails.
The hiking trails range from ease to moderate and you have five options. The Burke Roche Trail, Community Trail and the Ridge are longer, about 2.5 miles each, The Bowl Loop, The Waterfall Trail and the Ballfield Walking path are all easy and max out at one mile round trip. The Community Trail offers some of the best views offered at the Park, many of the city skyline below.
Though there aren’t many hotels super close as the Park takes up quite a bit of space, you can easily stay at The Culver Hotel in nearby Culver City. The city offers all the attractions and restaurants you could need and is close enough to make several trips to the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area if you should be so inclined.
When driving to the Recreation Area take a vehicle that can handle the shift in terrain like a 2013 SL63 AMG Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. This delightful machine will make tooling around the city, or the hills a breeze, and the ocean air on your face won’t hurt either.
