First time here and started up what was probably a narrow fire cut to the east, so watch for the main loop trail. A little steeper and more rugged than runyon canyon. But no crowds and great views on the western path going back down...More

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...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...More
